Great attention is paid to the army building, and our army has demonstrated its power in the battlefields.
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev made the remarks during the meeting with families of martyrs at the Presidential Palace Jan.28.
The president noted that April fights are our glorious historical victory: “We have liberated several strategic positions and raised the flag of Azerbaijan in those lands. Today, the Azerbaijani flag is waving in Leletepe height, Aghdere, Nakhchivan mountains which were before under occupation.”
“We are trying to resolve this issue through negotiations. I think today the growing potential, military-economic power of our country and its position in the world work for us and our country’s stance in the negotiation process is strong enough,” said the president.
According to the president, great funds are needed to strengthen the country’s military capabilities. “We supply our army with the most modern weapons. Why? Because we are in a state of war. Our territories are under occupation. And great funds are allocated for these purposes. Last year, Baku hosted two military parades which demonstrated the strong military potential of us. Nowadays, the Azerbaijani Army is one of the most powerful armies in the world,” said Ilham Aliyev.
