"The acquisition of new equipment is one of the top priorities, of course. Technological development in this area has become more pronounced in recent years," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev as he received in a video format Vugar Suleymanov due to his appointment as Chairman of the Board of the Agency for Mine Action of the Republic of Azerbaijan, APA reports.
"There is machinery, mechanisms and equipment now that can speed up the work and allow you the opportunity to do it with quality. Therefore, the most state-of-the-art equipment of the world's leading manufacturers must be brought to our country. The quality and speed of work will depend on that. Our former IDPs have longed for their homeland for 30 years. Therefore, demining should be carried out in such a way that we can start the restoration work in a short time, so that citizens can return to their lands after the completion of construction work.
I have repeatedly expressed my views regarding the sequence of our work, and I want to say again that the primary task is to clear mines. Then the damage will be assessed and then restoration work will be carried out," noted the head of state.
