Azerbaijani President: "Homes for the IDPs, i.e. former IDPs, will be built only on liberated lands"
- 08 January 2021
"A lot was done in the social sphere last year. I have already mentioned this. If there are any additions now, the Minister of Labor and Social Protection of the Population should mention that. At the same time, this year we must provide more houses to the families of martyrs," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev at meeting in a video format on the results of 2020, APA reports.
"In total, more than 9,000 martyr families have been provided with houses and apartments by the state. Last year, houses were planned for 1,500 martyr families. The Minister of Labor and Social Protection of the Population recently reported to me that these 1,500 families would be provided with housing by 15 January. This program should be continued this year. Homes will be given to the relatives of our heroic servicemen killed in the Patriotic War. I must also say that from now on, homes for the IDPs will be built only on liberated lands. Some projects are under way and some are nearing completion. Homes have been built in Fuzuli, Horadiz and other settlements, and these, of course, will be given to the IDPs. However, homes for the IDPs should no longer be built in Baku, Ganja, Sumgayit, Mingachevir and elsewhere. Homes for the IDPs, i.e. former IDPs, will be built only on liberated lands, and we will do this on the basis of a special program. Everyone should know this. I would like everyone to know this. This is a very fair approach," noted the President.
