"Let not Khojaly, Srebrenica or Rwanda happen again!".

Chief of the department of political analysis and information of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan, Elnur Aslanov, told the statement in his interview to 'Zaman' newspaper, Gun.Az reported.

Aslanov noted that the Khojaly genocide was a targeted act planned in advance.

'Azerbaijan witnessed the Khojaly massacre before Srebrenica and Rwanda genocides. Armenians used against the Azerbaijani nation the psychological method that the Germans applied on civilians in the Second World War,' Aslanov noted.

The chief of the department also mentioned the Khojaly rally to be held in Istanbul’s Taksim square on 26 February.

'The biggest goal here is to remind this crime against the humanity to the world. We want Khojaly, Srebrenica and Rwanda never happen again.'
