Ilham Aliyev: Azerbaijan to restore all territories liberated from occupation
Baku, Azerbaijan, June 21
Azerbaijan will, in a short period of time, restore all the territories to be liberated from occupation, said President Ilham Aliyev at an Iftar ceremony held on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan.
A very significant event has occurred in the history of our people and state recently, said President Aliyev.
“A new settlement was opened in the village of Jojug Marjanli, which was liberated from occupation. The 50 houses, a school, a road and the entire infrastructure built there in a matter of two months demonstrate both our strength and policy. Life will return to these territories and the Azerbaijani flag will be raised there – just as life returns to the lands liberated from occupation in Fuzuli, Jabrayil, Aghdara districts today, the Azerbaijani flag flies on these lands and constructive work is under way.”
Jojug Marjanli is a testament to Armenian fascism, said the Azerbaijani president.
“This village was under occupation for only three to four months. There was not a single building left there. Armenian vandals destroyed all houses. We have restored this village in two months and the issue of building another 100 houses will be resolved in the near future,” noted the president. “A mosque, which is an analogue of the Shusha mosque, has been constructed in Jojug Marjanli. This is also of great historical significance. Jojug Marjanli and other territories are our ancestral lands. We are creating a new life in these lands.”
“This shows that no one can ever break the will of Azerbaijani people. We have restored the Armenian church in Baku and are protecting it. The Armenians have destroyed our mosques in the occupied lands. The Govharaga Mosque, the analogue of which has been built in Jojug Marjanli, lies in ruins. A building can be destroyed, but the enemy must know that the destroyed mosques live in our hearts. We have built these mosques in our hearts,” said President Aliyev.
“Immediately after the liberation of these lands from occupation, within two months, a beautiful mosque was built there. This is of immense historical significance. I am sure that we will return to all the occupied lands, Azerbaijan will restore its territorial integrity and such wonderful Iftar ceremonies will be held on these lands as well, Inshallah,” added the Azerbaijani president.
