Azerbaijani state adviser proposes to preserve some houses in liberated Jojug Marjanli as museum
- 21 February 2017
Azerbaijan’s state adviser Kamal Abdulla said on Tuesday that it would be good to preserve a few houses vandalized by Armenians in the liberated Jojug Marjanli village as open-air museum as reminders of the invasion.
The return to Nagorno-Karabakh is beginning from Jojug Marjanli, the state adviser said, addressing the event titled “Khojaly Genocide – bloody memory of the Azerbaijani people!!! Justice For Khojaly!”, organized by the Caucasian Muslims Office.
“Hope some of the houses in Jojug Marjanli vandalized by Armenians will be preserved as open-air museum to constantly remind us of Armenian vandalism,” he added.
On 24 January 2017, President Ilham Aliyev signed an order on measures to restore the Jabrayil district’s Jojug Marjanli village liberated from the Armenian occupation.
The State Committee of Azerbaijan for Affairs of Refugees and IDPs will receive 4 million manats from the Presidential Reserve Fund for 2017 for construction of 50 houses, a school building and the relevant infrastructure at the first stage, according to the order.
