The Petition reads: "Excellency,
On 26 February 1992, the international community was shocked and outraged by the news of the grave international crime committed by the armed forces of Armenia in the town of Khojaly in Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. After keeping the town in blockade for several months and shelling it for weeks, the Armenian military seized Khojaly and committed one of the most despicable and barbaric acts against innocent civilians - the massacre which came to be known as the Khojaly Genocide. The invading military spared none and slaughtered 613 civilians, including 106 women, 63 children and 70 elderly people. A large number of victims were slain with particular cruelty.
