Ilham Aliyev: People living in Nagorno-Karabakh today are citizens of Azerbaijan


December 1, Fineko/abc.az. Now there is no more the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

ABC.AZ reports that this was stated by President Ilham Aliyev during his address to the Azerbaijani people.

The head of state noted that if someone thinks that this conflict is still ongoing, they are mistaken.

“People living in Nagorno-Karabakh today are citizens of Azerbaijan. I want to say again that they will live better within a united Azerbaijani state. They will get rid of this poverty. Notice that we are currently building a railway from Barda to Agdam. The distance from Agdam to Khankandi is around 20-30 km. How long will a trip from the capital of Armenia to Khankandi take – perhaps ten hours by truck. Moreover, this route lies through mountain roads. From Agdam to Khankandi, it will take half an hour,” the president said.
