The occupation of Karabakh and Eastern Zangazur was another tragedy for us. So notice how many tragedies our people were faced with in the 20th century alone. But we did not break, we did not bend, we did not lose faith, we gathered strength and eventually achieved what we wanted. Two years ago, we fulfilled our historical mission with dignity, restored justice, expelled the enemy from our lands and restored the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, said President Ilham Aliyev at a meeting with a group of intellectuals from Western Azerbaijan, APA reports.
"We are building and creating there, removing the ruins and trying to tell the world to come and have a look. Open your eyes, it is your beloved Armenian people who have committed these atrocities. These crimes were committed not by someone from an alien planet, but by your beloved and protected Armenian people, who have destroyed mosques, historical sites and graves, and who have committed unspeakable atrocities. They did the same in Western Azerbaijan. Simply, the world community does not see or does not want to see them. Armenian atrocities in Karabakh were not evidenced by anyone either," the head of state.
"Although two OSCE fact-finding missions were sent to the occupied lands, we can see double standards in their reports," noted the president.
