"Work is underway to establish a Russian-Turkish Monitoring Center in the Aghdam region. A joint statement on the establishment of the Monitoring Center also says that the center will monitor the situation," said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in his speech at the meeting of heads of CIS countries, APA reports.
"As for what is happening there now, there is no city of Agdam, it has been destroyed. A partially destroyed mosque remains in Aghdam. When we asked why it was not destroyed like all other mosques, we were told that it was a kind of landmark, to determine the direction in the area, so that if the Azerbaijani Army attacked in this direction, they could give the artillery the exact direction of the attack. Foreign journalists who visited the former city of Aghdam and the rest of it call it the "Hiroshima" of the Caucasus. I think this is worse than Hiroshima. Because Hiroshima was a nuclear tragedy, an atomic strike. But a group of vandals and barbarians did not pass through. As for us, the city of Agdam was destroyed after the occupation. Like the city of Fuzuli, it was deliberately destroyed," said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.
