"During the time of occupation Armenia deliberately destroyed cities and villages, all cultural and religious sites of Azerbaijan in the occupied territories. Even the graveyards were not spared," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev at a Mid-term Ministerial Conference of the Non-Aligned Movement, held in a video format today, APA reports.

"The aim of Armenia was to erase the traces of Azerbaijani people living in these territories for centuries. Our mosques were used as stables for pigs and cows. Aghdam city was destroyed to that extent that it is called as "Hiroshima of Caucasus". After the liberation, our Army could not find a single building in Fuzuli city to raise the Azerbaijani flag. All of them were destroyed by Armenia," noted the head of state.
