The Baku-Shusha route is one of priority directions for development of tourism, the statement was sounded by Faik Gurbanov, the head of the Division on internal tourism development of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Culture and Tourism, at a news conference held in Baku on 19 April in connection with the opening of 5th jubilee international exhibition Tourism and Traveling.
The Ministry of Culture and Tourism has defined 6 directions for development of tourism in Azerbaijan, including the Baku-Shusha direction.
Upon liberation of the lands from Armenian occupation this direction will become a priority and there no doubt in this respect, Gurbanov underlined. A list of historic and culture monuments located in the occupied territory of Azerbaijan has been compiled. However, possible destruction of part of these monuments by Armenians excites deep alarm, he warned.
