BAKU, Azerbaijan, November 30. The currently under-construction mosque in the city of Lachin will become one of the largest in Azerbaijan's liberated territories, once ready, the Deputy Director of the "State Improvement Service of Lachin" OJSC Elnur Abdullayev said, Trend reports.
"The restoration and construction of mosques and temples, places of religious worship, are under special control as part of the construction work carried out in the territories liberated from Armenian occupation," he noted.

Following the liberation of its territories from the Armenian occupation, Azerbaijan launched large-scale restoration and rebuilding of damaged and destroyed facilities, including mosques.
