"We left Azykh and came to Shusha yesterday. The roads are still in a very bad condition, because there is no road. We came here along Victory road. So far it is only a ground road, because the weather is cold and it is impossible to lay asphalt. It was muddy and there was a heavy fog. This is why we came from Azykh to Shusha in 1 hour and 45 minutes. We stayed in Shusha overnight. We left at 9 in the morning and are going to attend several events. The weather is clear, but there are still clouds above the city," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev on March 16 during the visit to Shusha with First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva and their daughter Leyla Aliyeva, APA reports.
"We last came here in January. We returned the busts of Natavan, Uzeyir Hajibayli and Bulbul to Shusha. It is a great pleasure to come to Shusha again today. On the left, there are snowy and foggy mountains of Shusha.
Restoration of Vagif's mausoleum will begin soon. The former appearance of the mausoleum will be restored. Restoration work will begin today.
Relevant instructions have already been given to restore the mosques. Preliminary studies have begun and the project will be presented in the near future.
Shusha is beautiful in every season.
We will also restore the springs. For 30 years, Armenians dried up all our springs. Notice what the city is like now, what the enemy has done to Shusha.
We are approaching Vagif's mausoleum. Work has already begun. I have looked at the project. Here are the photos. National leader Heydar Aliyev attended both the opening and Vagif Poetry Day. We are restoring history. This project will be implemented by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation at its own expense, with the taste typical of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation and under the leadership of Mehriban Aliyeva," noted the head of state.
