APPG Azerbaijan 'Black January' Event

Bob is the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Azerbaijan and in that capacity, he hosted an event to mark 'Black January', which commemorates the massacre of civilians that occurred on January 19 and 20 1990 when Sovient tanks rolled in to the capital of Azerbaijan, Baku. He spoke about the importance of remembering what happened, while acknowledging that it was in essence where the breakup of the Soviet Union started, which in turn led to the independent Azerbaijan that we have today. The Ambassador to Azerbaijan, His Excellency Mr Tahir Taghizade, also attended to speak.
