Nakhichevan Armenia’s call on Council of Europe to Protect Monumen’s

YEREVAN (Yerkir)–The convention of Nakhichevan Armenia’s–which convened in Yerevan–cited the barbaric destruction of 3,000 khachkars (cross-stones) and several Armenian churches of the medieval Armenian city of New Julfa reported by Nakhichevan authorities–and called on the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) to take the Armenian monumen’s under its control to prevent further destruction.

"The goal of Nakhichevan Armenia’s is to gain the right–guaranteed by international organizations–to consider their opinion when their historic homeland’s borders are altered or are given special status; these rights include free access to Nakhichevan and resettlement," said a statement released by the convention.
