BAKU, Azerbaijan, September 29. So far, since the Second Karabakh War ended, $7 billion have been spent up to now from the Azerbaijani budget for reconstruction of the liberated territories, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at the 2nd Azerbaijan National Urban Development Forum in Zangilan, Trend reports.
"For the next year, minimum budget – which we plan, and soon it will be discussed in our parliament – is $2.4 billion.
Azerbaijan implements all these projects at its own expense. We did not get any financial assistance, any support, apart from two brotherly countries, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. The presidents of these countries were very generous to donate two schools and art centers in the city of Fuzuli," President Ilham Aliyev said.
