The Lemkin Institute has demanded that the UN cancel the decision to hold COP29 in Azerbaijan

The American Lemkin Institute for Genocide Prevention opposed the UN decision to hold the annual Climate Change Conference (COP29) in Azerbaijan. This reaction is related, among other things, to the illegal detention of social entrepreneur Ruben Vardanyan and other former Artsakh leaders.

“By giving Azerbaijan the honor of hosting this important event, COP29, the UN is endorsing genocidal speeches, genocidal policies and dictatorship, which will not benefit the climate or the peoples of the world,” the organization said in its statement.
