People of Azerbaijan tirelessly walked towards this victory - President Aliyev

BAKU, Azerbaijan, Oct. 18


The people of Azerbaijan tirelessly walked towards this victory, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said addressing the meeting with the general public of the Fuzuli district, Trend reports.

" I would just like to add that this is a victory for all of us. Because the people of Azerbaijan tirelessly walked towards this victory. Each of us was working from their end and contributed to our common Victory and our common development bringing this day, this holy day closer.

It is no coincidence that the second Karabakh war is called a Patriotic War. Each of us, every citizen of Azerbaijan not only looked forward to this day, believed in it, but also brought it closer with their hard work. There has never been a more important issue for us, for our people, than the liberation of our lands. I think this is one of the main factors of our victory. Because we had not forgotten Karabakh, we had not come to terms with that situation. However, we were told that we had to reckon with reality, with the fact that we were defeated in the first war in the 1990s. We were told to come to terms with this situation and reach some compromise with the Armenians. My position was clear. I have stated this position in all domestic and international events, saying that we would never come to terms with this situation. It was the determination of our people that gave me strength. Our people did not come to terms with that situation, and listen to what this young girl who has not seen these lands says. Our young people who did not see these lands were dying for these places. This shows the greatness of our people again. There have been many wars and conflicts in history, and there have been times when nations have come to terms with the occupation, bowed their heads. But our people have always stood tall. We have always lived with the desire and idea that the day will come when we will restore justice, when we will get rid of the “defeated” label over our people, when we will live as a proud people, as a victorious people, and this day has come. If our people did not believe in it, if our society did not support our policy in that area, it would be very difficult to end the war with these results. Therefore, this is a victory for all of us, a celebration for all of us.

Of course, there are many factors. This has already been talked about. This will be written about in books, articles and researches, taking into account the factors that contributed to our victory. But I think that the most important of them is our unyielding spirit and patriotism. It was in this region that our young men, young soldiers and officers were dying. Armenians were based in all those positions, in those positions in the mountains. They were there for 30 years, they had built fortifications, bunkers, long-range firing points. We were crossing the line of contact from the plain, breaking through those fortifications, and our young people were dying. Therefore, the first factor has been patriotism and love of the Motherland. This factor will continue to make our people invincible.

Our main task – of course, the restoration and development of our lands are always there – is to raise young people in the spirit of patriotism. Because if we do not do that, then our dreams will be incomplete. If there is patriotism and if there is attachment to the Motherland, no force can stand in front of us.

Before during and after the war, some people tried to threaten us, and they are still doing that. But all these efforts were in vain. Because no-one can bend our resolve. We will not give up our dignity, our pride and our independence to anyone. Everyone should know this. Everyone knows where those who were trying to threaten us are now. This must be a lesson for everyone, a lesson for all. No-one can speak to Azerbaijan in the language of force, in the language of threats.

I once again congratulate you on this holy day – the day of the liberation of Fuzuli – and wish you good health. I am sure that we will soon rebuild and restore this beautiful land. We will meet many more times here. Thank you again!" the head of state said.
