"The Azerbaijani Army is currently conducting a counter-offensive in response to military provocation. I can say that the operation has been successful. As a result of the successful counter-offensive, the enemy's workforce and military equipment were severely damaged. Several occupied Azerbaijani settlements have been liberated," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ilham Aliyev as he addressed a meeting of the Security Council, Report quotes.
The head of state congratulated the Azerbaijan people on the Azerbaijani army's successful counter-offensive.
"I am confident that our successful counter-offensive will end the occupation! It will end injustice! It will end the occupation that has lasted for nearly 30 years! Because the people of Azerbaijan want to live on their lands. Azerbaijani citizen lives longing for his homeland. People forcibly driven out of their ancestral lands by Armenians by the Armenian leadership want to return to their native lands even though savages have already destroyed their homes.
Look at the ruins of Aghdam. Look at the ruins of Fuzuli. Look at the state of our mosques in the occupied territories, the state of our cemeteries. Armenian executioners committed all this, and we are right. Our struggle is a struggle for justice, and the citizens of Azerbaijan fully support the state today. We always feel this support. Citizen of Azerbaijan are with the Azerbaijani Army, and I turn to our compatriots who have not been able to return to their native lands for almost 30 years and say that we will do our best to return you to your native lands."
