Shavarsh Kocharyan: Murder of Karen Petrosyan has many similarities with the cruel murder of American journalist in Syria

  • by Ashot Safaryan

With such groundless and irresponsible statements Baku makes yet another failed attempt to conceal its disrespectful and primitive attitude towards human life, Armenia's Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh Kocharyan told the "First news" service of the Public Television of Armenia when asked to comment the complaint of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan concerning the international condemnations of the murder of Karen Petrosyan.

The website of Armenia's Foreign Ministry quotes Kocharyan as saying that unfortunately, the murder of Karen Petrosyan is not the only case. 
"It is impossible to forget the cases of Samvel Saribekyan, who was similarly murdered, and Mamikon Khojoyan, who died after returning to motherland as a result of the tortures undergone in Azerbaijan.

The failed attempts to deny the apparent facts of the murder of Karen Petrosyan are being carried out through the same traditional methods, by which the Azerbaijani leadership has been denying the reactions of the international community concerning the persecutions of the activists in Azerbaijan. The difference is that the dissidents are accused for spying for Armenians, and the international organizations and foreign countries are blamed for being under the influence of Armenians. Such accusations once again witness the Armenophobic essence of the current leadership of Azerbaijan.

The murder of Karen Petrosyan has many similarities with the cruel murder of American journalist James Foley committed by extremists a couple of days ago, who was humiliated and then killed. The only difference is that the murder of the Armenian citizen was not committed publicly, but right in the way Gurgen Margaryan was axe murdered under the cover of the night, and the perpetrator was glorified in Azerbaijan.

Instead of blaming those calling things by their names, the leadership in Baku should understand that acting by such barbaric methods leads their country into a medieval abyss.
