"The logical result of the strategic plans followed for the comprehensive development of Azerbaijan for many years, and the continuous work done to further strengthen our country, was the establishment of historical justice - ensuring the territorial integrity of our country," President Ilham Aliyev said in his address to the people of Azerbaijan on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the restoration of independence,
"Demonstrating true heroism and patriotism on the battlefield, our brave Army liberated our lands from the occupation in just 44 days. The Patriotic War waged by the Azerbaijani people resulted in the signing of a capitulation act by Armenia. Azerbaijan's victory in the Great Patriotic War has created new realities in our region. Our historic victory is the beginning of a new era in the development of our country and the region as a whole," the president said.
