Projects already implemented in Fuzuli show both our intentions and potential - Azerbaijani president
BAKU, Azerbaijan, October 17
The projects already implemented in Fuzuli show both our intentions and potential, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said addressing the meeting with the general public of the Fuzuli district, Trend reports.
“During the occupation, I visited the part of Fuzuli District that was under our control many times, I visited Fuzuli district 12 times. A lot has been done for the development of the district. Horadiz settlement was given the status of a city and became the unofficial center of the Fuzuli district. Major social infrastructure projects were implemented here – 24 schools, two hospitals, an Olympic Sports Center, a youth center, the Museum of History and Ethnography, the Mugam Center were built here. A lot has been done in terms of infrastructure. Restoration of individual houses has been carried out. In other words, large-scale work on the development of the Fuzuli district has been carried out. As I mentioned earlier, I have been to Fuzuli 12 times. I always met with the IDPs here and told them that after the liberation of Fuzuli city and the rest of the district, we would build even better houses, create even better conditions for their return. Today, everyone can see that. The projects already implemented in Fuzuli show both our intentions and potential. Fuzuli International Airport was built in just eight months. While inspecting the airport today, I saw again that perhaps no other international airports have been built in a mined area in such a short period of time elsewhere in the world. We have laid power lines from Fuzuli to Shusha. Because after the liberation of Shusha, the contemptible enemy cut off all power lines. It even blew up the waterline, and Shusha was left without electricity in the winter months. Therefore, power lines were laid from Fuzuli to Shusha in difficult conditions. A substation was opened in Fuzuli and the foundation stone of a second substation was laid today,” the head of state said.
