The head of state stressed that Azerbaijan is building and creating in the liberated lands, including in the village of Talish, as well as in Sugovushan, Hadrut, Shusha - and in all other liberated territories.

"Armenia devastated these lands, plundered them. For 30 years, it was destroying everything stone by stone, solding it in the markets both in Armenia and in its neighboring country. On the contrary, we are building and creating.”

Armenia must recognize the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan

Ilham Aliyev reminded that Armenia, which previously made statements that "Karabakh is Armenia, period" and threatened a new war, is now trying by any means to find a new patron and owner, showing the whole world its venality and ingratitude, but it is of no use.

The President of Azerbaijan stressed that for a peaceful existence Armenia needs to fulfill only one condition – to accept Azerbaijan’s conditions and officially recognize Karabakh as the territory of Azerbaijan, and carry out work on delimitation.

"If Armenia does not recognize our territorial integrity, then we will not recognize their territorial integrity. Where this will lead, Armenia and the hypocritical countries supporting it should understand well. They should know that no dirty plans against us will succeed. We have both strength, and friends, and strong positions in the world, and a strong will. We demonstrated this both during the war and during the post-war period."
