Azerbaijanis have gathered in front of the Armenian Embassy in Washington, the U.S., to stage a rally in commemoration of victims of the Khojaly genocide.

Organized by the U.S. Azeris Network (USAN), the rally involved members of the Azerbaijani community.

The rally featured banners highlighting the truth about the Khojaly genocide.

Co-founders of USAN Adil Bagirov and Badir Mammadli condemned the genocide, and demanded the withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from Azerbaijan, the release of hostages and the return of refugees to their homelands.

Black balloons were released into the air by the rally participants.
