“During the occupation, the enemy celebrated the occupation of Shusha, a city sacred to us, in May every year. In May of this year, the “Kharibulbul” festival was held here on the Jidir Duzu, and the mugham was played. In August, Vagif Poetry Days were held here, and poems by Vagif and other great poets were recited in Shusha,” President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ilham Aliyev said while making a speech in front of the servicemen in Shusha, APA reports.

"From now on, no songs will be sung here in a strange language and no inappropriate statements will be made in this land and under this sky. From now on, it will be the Azerbaijani language that will dominate this land, as has been the case throughout history – calls to prayer in the Shusha mosque, the sound of the mugham in the Jidir Duzu, poems in front of the mausoleum of Vagif. That is the reality. We have achieved this. Despite all the international pressure and despite all the threats, our people united like a fist, stood behind the Army, and we have fulfilled this historic and glorious mission. For 44 days, we kept moving forward every day and never took a step back. Despite 10,000 deserters in the Armenian army, no one in the Azerbaijani army escaped from the battlefield. This is our national spirit. This is the spirit of Azerbaijan.

During the occupation, Armenia invented myths about its army and its alleged warriors: “the invincible Armenian army”. Where is this invincible army now? Where is the Armenian army? It has been blown to smithereens, we crushed them in a matter of 44 days. They begged for help and were on their knees. Accepting our conditions, they signed an act of capitulation in the early hours of 10 November and waved the white flag," noted the head of state.
