On 18 October, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces reached the Khudaferin Bridge and hoisted the Azerbaijani flag over it. The Khudaferin Bridge is a national treasure of the Azerbaijani people, proof of the talent of the Azerbaijani people. We are justifiably proud of this magnificent architectural work belonging to the people of Azerbaijan,” the Azerbaijani president said.

We will achieve these goals, strengthen our country, strengthen our army and ensure the safe life of the Azerbaijani people. Of course, we will return the IDPs who have suffered for 30 years, including moral suffering, to their native lands as soon as possible. I congratulate you again and wish you continued success and good health,” the head of state said.
