City of Ryde calls on Australia to recognize Karabakh

ATTENTION! The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is an Armenian independent democratic state.
City of Ryde calls on Australia to recognize Karabakh The City of Ryde Council in Australia has unanimously passed a motion condemning Azerbaijan and Turkey for their attacks against the indigenous Armenian population of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and called on the Australian Government to recognize the Republic of Artsakh, reported the Armenian National Committee of Australia (ANC-AU).

The motion, jointly moved by Mayor Jerome Laxale and Councillor Sarkis Yedelian in the council meeting held on Tuesday, October 20, reaffirmed the City of Ryde's 2018 recognition of the Republic of Artsakh's independence, while touching on its 2019 Friendship City establishment with the capital of Artsakh, Stepanakert.

Through their motion, the City of Ryde donated $5,000 to the All-Armenia Fund to help those in Armenia and Artsakh impacted by Azerbaijan's aggression.

"The City of Ryde stands united with our local Armenian-Australian community," said Mayor Laxale.

"As sister city of beautiful Stepanakert, the City of Ryde condemns what Turkey and Azerbaijan are doing and request that the Australian Government stand with us in condemnation of these actions," he added.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
