In 2020, she stressed, the Army of Azerbaijan led by Commander-in-Chief Ilham Aliyev freed our lands after almost thirty years of Armenian occupation. Not only had Azerbaijan made its national territory whole again but it had also enforced, all by itself, the four resolutions of the UN Security Council.
The Garabagh Conflict has been under the bridge whereas our country has stepped into a new age, according to the Chair of the Milli Majlis.
