Representatives of Artsakh Armenians to be granted honorary citizenship of Paris

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said that on December 10 — International Human Rights Day — she will grant honorary citizenship of the French capital to rep-resentatives of Artsakh Armenians.

“Our thoughts are with the victims, their families, and the 100,000 refugees as well as political prisoners held by Azerbaijan,” Hidalgo wrote on Twitter.

She also stated that Azerbaijan is guilty of the arbitrary detention of former Artsakh officials and the destruction of the Armenian heritage in the republic. Hidalgo calls for the immediate release of all Armenian prisoners held by Ba-ku.
