"Many parades were held in the square. But this parade has a special significance. This is the Victory Parade," President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ilham Aliyev said in his speech at the Victory Parade in Baku's Azadliq (Freedom) Square today, APA reports.
The Supreme Commander-in-Chief said that this is a historic event: "In one of the parades, I said that in 2016 the flag will be raised at the height of Lalatapa. I said that the day will come when the Azerbaijani flag raised in the occupied territories will be brought to Freedom Square. Today has come. We, the people of Azerbaijan, are the witnesses of this historic day. From now on, we will only move forward. I would like to end my speech with a famous saying. Everyone knows that the Armenian leadership said a year ago that "Karabakh is Armenia and the point." And I said that Karabakh is Azerbaijan! Today, the whole world sees that Karabakh is Azerbaijan! Karabakh is ours! Karabakh is Azerbaijan! Love to the Azerbaijani Army! Long live Turkish-Azerbaijani friendship and brotherhood! Long live the Azerbaijani soldier!"
