"We are already investing. A special investment program for liberated territories have been adopted," said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in his interview with Italian “La Repubblica” newspaper while responding to the question "Is Baku going to invest money in the freed territories?", APA reports.

"For this year the total investments are close to actually exactly 1.3 bln US dollars. Investments are mainly in infrastructure. By the end of the year all the electric power of the liberated territories which is 10 thousand square kilometres will be already totally completed. We are now building roads, railroads. The first airport in the liberated territories, in Fuzuli is already ready and is already receiving the planes. We built it in eight months. Two more airports are now in the phase of construction. Also, we started already the housing projects. City planning of two cities have been already proved and we started. So, we started very actively, and the plan is to return the former refugees as soon as possible to their homelands," noted the President.
