"Also, after the second Karabakh war, Ganja also has contributed, as it should, to the development of Kalbajar district," said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in an interview with AZERTAC in Ganja, APA reports.

"Because the only way we can easily travel to Kalbajar is from Ganja to Goygol and from Goygol to Kalbajar. What I mean by easily, we can use that road only in spring and summer. Because in winter, the road is both impassable and very dangerous. There was no such road there in Soviet times. It was just a trail. We widened that trail in a short time, and I went to Kalbajar through there myself last year, crossing the Murov Pass. At present, a large tunnel is being built under Mount Murov – about 12 kilometers long. So the future development of Kalbajar, the return of citizens there and the supply of Kalbajar district, as well as Lachin district, will be largely organized from this region. Therefore, the restoration of Ganja and the liberated lands of this zone is of special importance for the comfortable life of our citizens. At present, most of the equipment for our military posts and posts along our border goes through here. Therefore, the territories in and around Ganja will continue to play a special role in the life of our country, especially in the life of the liberated lands.

Of course, the city's population is growing. We are, of course, taking and will continue to take additional steps to adapt to this population growth and modern requirements. At the same time, the current successful development of the mining industry in Dashkasan district will largely depend on the infrastructure in Ganja. Because there are both gold and iron ore deposits. Additional instructions have been given to speed up this work. A chain industrial cluster must be created for the efficient use of iron ore deposits. Of course, Ganja will also have a special role in that. In short, as a result of the implementation of state programs for socioeconomic development of the regions, the city of Ganja has always had a special place. This is the case today and it will be the case in the future," said the President.
