Azerbaijani defence officials have shared the story of a decorated army officer martyred during the recent clashes to liberate Nagorno-Karabakh from Armenia.


On Dec. 31, 2020, a Turkish military delegation, led by Defence Minister Hulusi Akar and Chief of General Staff Yasar Guler, participated in the opening of a photo exhibition on the theme, Turkish-Azerbaijani Brotherhood is Eternal.

In the display, the photo which grabbed Akar's particular attention was that of Lt. Valeh Memiyev.

Col. Abdullah Gurbani of the Azerbaijan Defence Ministry has now shared the story of the fallen hero with Anadolu Agency.

According to him, the photo was taken during an award ceremony that followed a joint Turkish-Azerbaijani joint military exercise on Aug. 13, 2020.

Addressing the Azerbaijani troops who participated in the exercise, the Turkish defence minister had appreciated their "strength and professionalism."

"Your main task remains the liberation of Azerbaijani territories, which are under Armenian occupation for the last 30 years,” he had said.

“We are waiting for orders from our supreme commander [Ilham Aliyev]. Once we receive the orders, we will liberate our territories and realize your wish," Lt. Memiyev had responded to Akar.

Gurbani said Memiyev and his comrade-in-arms kept their promise by participating in the liberation of many settlements in the Qubadli region.

“Unfortunately, war and victory come with losses. During the clashes, Memiyev was critically wounded. In his last moments, he smiled and told his comrades that he kept his promise to Hulusi Akar."
