“After the Shusha Victory, the enemy was practically ready to capitulate and signed the act of capitulation the following day. And we stopped the war,” President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in a speech at a military parade held in the city of Khankandi on the occasion of November 8 - Victory Day, APA reports.
“At that time, our Armed Forces were just a step away from Khankandi. Stopping the war at that time was our conscious choice. The fact that we are holding the military parade here today, in the central square of the city of Khankandi, once again shows how correct and wise that decision was,” the head of state added.
