Lachin is one of our biggest districts. It covers an area of 1,800 square kilometers. The Lachin district's rich nature, historical sites, and underground riches are our national treasure. Lachin district will play an essential part in the future economic development of Azerbaijan. First of all, we will return Lachin to the people of Lachin.
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said in his address to the nation, Report informs.
I sincerely congratulate dear residents of Lachin on this beautiful event. When Lachin was occupied, just over 50,000 people lived in it. Today the population of Lachin district has reached 80,000 people. Of course, one of our main goals will be to return Lachin residents there as soon as possible. We will also try to return the former internally displaced persons to all other districts liberated from the occupation as quickly as possible.
