"Political and economic independence has allowed us to build our lives as we want, to build a state based on the ancient traditions and values of the Azerbaijani people, and to live comfortably in this state," said President Ilham Aliyev during a meeting with public representatives in Ahgali village of Zangilan region, APA reports.
The head of state said: “The processes taking place in the world today are in front of our eyes. Azerbaijan is a land, and I can say that an island of stability and security. The whole world already witnesses and knows this fact. Of course, if we were not independent, that is, if we were not literally independent, we would not be able to end the Armenian occupation. Since there were the factors that caused this occupation, of course, external factors."
