BAKU, Azerbaijan, September 29. The Azerbaijani people are deeply connected with their roots, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at the 2nd Azerbaijan National Urban Forum in Zangilan, Trend reports.
"Zangilan was the first region of the liberated territories, which already received the first former refugees. The smart village of Aghali, which was partially was shown on the video was inaugurated last spring. People, their families already live freely and happily. When I visited Aghali village many times before the return, and during the return, and after, I witnessed that people who return there are so deeply connected to their roots. The young generation who didn't ever see their homeland, because of 30 years of occupation, return. So this demonstrates that the people of Azerbaijan are deeply connected to their roots, and all the former refugees were waiting for the time when our land will be free and they will have a chance to come back. They were deprived of that chance by Armenia for 30 years. But three years ago, we put an end to the occupation," President Ilham Aliyev said.
