April 16, Fineko/ “The new project (the reconstruction of the Shirvan irrigation canal – ed.) to be implemented will cover 230,000 hectares of arable land.”

ABC.AZ informs that President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev stated about this as he addressed a groundbreaking ceremony for the reconstruction of the Shirvan irrigation canal in the Hajigabul district.

“Most of this will be newly irrigated farmland. Whereas earlier this canal covered eight districts, now it will cover 10, and the last point of the canal will be Lake Hajigabul right behind me. Lake Hajigabul has been completely dry for more than 10 years now. After the canal has been put into operation, the lake will also be filled, which will have a very positive effect on nature,” the head of state emphasized.
