"The government is doing its best for the families of martyrs and those disabled in the war. My policy in this area is unequivocal. Over the past 17 years, I have repeatedly met with the families of martyrs at various events," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev at the ceremony to give out apartments to families of martyrs and war disabled in the residential complex in Ramana settlement, Baku on February 25, APA reports.
"To date, about 9,200 families of martyrs and those disabled in the war have been provided with housing by the state. A total of 1,572 apartments were provided last year alone. A further about 3,000 apartments will be provided this year. Thus, the families of our children killed in both the first and second Karabakh wars living in Baku, Sumgayit and Absheron district will be provided with apartments by the end of this year. So we will fully implement this program in Baku, Sumgayit and Absheron district by the end of this year. The construction of buildings and individual houses for the families of martyrs living in other cities and districts is also under way. I am sure that this program will be fully implemented in the near future. I must also say that about 7,200 cars have been provided to those disabled in the war.
By citing these figures, I want like to emphasize the government’s care for this category of people. I want to say that Azerbaijan is one of the leading countries in the world in this area," the head of the state noted.
