BAKU, Azerbaijan, October 17
We had to liberate our lands. During the occupation, I repeatedly addressed the people of Azerbaijan and held meetings with former IDPs regarding this issue, saying that we had to liberate our lands at any cost, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said addressing the meeting with the general public of the Fuzuli district, Trend reports.
“I also said that if necessary, we would return our lands by force. And this is what happened. Despite all the pressure and statements both during the occupation and during the war proper, no force was able to stand in front of us. We dismantled the Armenian army, put an end to Armenian myths, proved to the whole world what the “invincible Armenian army” was capable of, and demonstrated the greatness of our people to the whole world. This glorious victory will live forever in the centuries-old history of Azerbaijan,” the head of state said.
