“October 18 is really a historical day. Azerbaijan gained its independence for the second time in the 20th century. The first years of independence were very difficult, passed tragically for Azerbaijan. We could have lost our independence. As we lost in 1920, it lasted only 2 years. Then the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic collapsed. This time, Armenia's aggression against Azerbaijan, as well as an internal disorder within Azerbaijan, caused a great crisis. Only after the National leader Leader Heydar Aliyev came to power in 1993, the situation stabilized and stability was ensured. Azerbaijan has confidently embarked on the path of development,” Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said in an interview with Turkish A Haber channel while answering the question that “October 18 is an important day - the Independence Day of Azerbaijan. On this date, the people of Azerbaijan expect good news from you, God willing. Will you have any good news in connection with Karabakh?” APA reports.
The head of the state noted that therefore October 18 is a very dear date for us: “However, during this period, during these 17-18 days, I have not put such a duty before our army, you will get it in that day, you will get it in that day- I have not put such a duty. Because war has its own rules, its own laws. The main issue for us is to restore our territorial integrity. It does not matter when the good news will be announced- on 18th, on 17th, on the 19th- it is not so important. The important thing is that we do it, we to achieve it. At the same time, we could provide information on some villages today, and maybe it will be. But the most important is to take strategical heights. Because while taking these heights we control larger areas. After it, we create conditions for the successful counter-attack operation of the Azerbaijani Army to be more successful.
