Re: “Armenians are facing another genocide,” (The Hill Times, Jan. 23). The opinion article by Raffi Sarkissian should not go unanswered as it is based on historical untruths and mischievously mixes propaganda with Canadian foreign policy. The key facts at issue can easily be summarized: (1) the Armenian illegal occupation of Azerbaijan territory since the fall of the Soviet empire, created some one million refugees; (2) the United Nations Security Council has repeatedly condemned Armenian occupation, while the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s Minsk mediation has been a total failure; and (3) finally last year, the Azerbaijan forces succeeded, by force of arms, to end Armenian occupation. Canada must act in accordance with international law; anything else would be biased and in violation of international law. Accordingly, Armenian propagandists attempting to link this conflict with what happened in the First World War are wrong and should be ignored. Ozay Mehmet Toronto, Ont.
