BAKU, Azerbaijan, June 15
I am sure that the messages that we will send to our region and the whole world from Shusha, the cultural capital of Azerbaijan which has presented mankind with many artists, will be very important, President of the Republic of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan said making a press statement following the ceremony of signing Shusha Declaration, Trend reports.
“As you know, together with my brother, Mr. Aliyev, we shared the joy of the Karabakh Victory by the Azerbaijani army in Baku on 10 December. On that day, there were completely different feelings, a completely different excitement. I am very pleased to be alongside him in the ancient city of Shusha six months later. It is good that we are keeping our promise,” Erdogan added.
“Once again, I congratulate the Azerbaijani people on the Karabakh Victory. I am sure that the messages that we will send to our region and the whole world from Shusha, the cultural capital of Azerbaijan which has presented mankind with many artists, will be very important. We closely follow the work on the reconstruction of Karabakh, which has gained freedom under the visionary leadership of my brother Ilham Aliyev, the victorious Supreme Commander-in-Chief. On arrival in Shusha, both you and us saw this work. There is continuous work, hard work in the field of infrastructure. Roads and high-voltage power lines are being extended, power stations are being opened. Along with all this, this non-irrigated region is now provided with water. This work is currently ongoing. Inshallah, there will be airports in the region very soon. My dear brother specifically informed me about this during our one-on-one meeting. After the construction of airports, the number of visitors to these places will increase. I am sure that this region will achieve serious progress in terms of tourism during that period,” the president said.
