"Today we are in Talish village, which was restored in a short time after the liberation, and we are celebrating the Novruz holiday, which is of particular importance for us, because 20 families who returned here, for the first time in many years, are celebrating this holiday in the native village,” Huseynov said.
This is a double holiday for the former internally displaced persons who returned here, he noted.
“Taking this opportunity, I want to say that our state has built all the necessary infrastructure for residents who returned to our liberated villages,” the official also said.
It’s gratifying that the residents who have returned are quickly adapting, Huseynov emphasized.
“Particular attention is paid to the employment opportunities of the residents. Some of the employed residents are engaged in small business here, and some families are provided with various employment packages," he added.
