Zangilan will become transport and logistical center of our country - President Aliyev

BAKU, Azerbaijan, Oct. 21


Zangilan will become the transport and logistical center of our country, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said addressing the meeting with members of the general public of Zangilan district, Trend reports.

"This is a victory for all of us, a victory of the Azerbaijani people. Because our people did not bow down during the occupation, did not come to terms with that situation, did not forget about their native lands. Even young people who did not see these lands lived with the dream of liberating these lands, and they were the ones who were ready to die. It was those kids who were in the first rows – they were born after the occupation or perhaps were 5-10 years old during the occupation. In other words, this shows that our people were waiting for the holy day of Victory despite all the difficulties and sufferings, and believed that this day would come. We simply made effort to mobilize all our people and raise our young people in the spirit of patriotism. Of course, we have strengthened our army, strengthened our economy, enhanced our international standing and achieved what we wanted, achieved historical justice. We are here with you today. This is my fourth visit to Zangilan. I came here in December and we got acquainted with the situation. Then I came here in February, when we planted plane trees in the Basitchay reserve, most of which was destroyed by the Armenians. When I came here in April, the foundation of the airport was laid. I went there again this time and preparations have started for runway earthworks. As you know, times there was no airport in Zangilan in Soviet. But there will be not just an airport, but an international airport here, and Zangilan will become the transport and logistical center of our country. Because the Zangazur corridor passes through here, the railway and the Horadiz-Aghband highway are under construction. Recent events related to the opening of the Zangazur corridor show that we are achieving what we want. Although the Armenian side resisted it at the first stage, they have now agreed to it. Of course, to put it mildly, we have played a role here. Therefore, the issue of opening the highway is being resolved, the issue of the railway is being resolved. The deputy prime ministers of Azerbaijan, Russia and Armenia will meet again in Moscow today, and our position will be voiced there again. Thus, a modern logistical and transport center, cargo planes, passenger planes, railway junction, highways – the entire infrastructure will be built in Zangilan in parallel with the protection of nature, the protection of rivers. You know what the Armenians have done to the Okhchuchay. The Okhchuchay is a natural disaster zone. The analyses of water samples from there show that the amount of toxic substances exceeds the safety standard probably 10 to 20 times. We will clean all these rivers and the mining industry will develop here. The Vejnali gold deposit was illegally exploited by the Armenians together with foreign companies. We have started the process of suing those foreign companies and you will hear about that in the near future. Their attempts to evade this work are futile because everything is obvious. They were engaged in illegal work in another country, smuggled gold from here and sold it on world markets. We will bring those who were associated with them to justice. We have also involved international lawyers," Azerbaijani president said.

"Work is already under way in the areas of tourism, agriculture, transport, logistics, environmental protection and, of course, the creation of suitable conditions for people. Aghali village is now under construction, and after the master plan of Zangilan city is approved, we will start construction work here as well. Zangilan will become a modern and important region of the country. I have no doubt that we will do this together with you and your advice will be appreciated. Because after the presentation of the master plan, the people should also express their opinion. Because you – the people who lived here – know exactly what was here before. Seeing this destruction, you probably remember what these places were like before," the head of state said.
