Azerbaijani Parliament to adopt declaration on anniversary of Patriotic War

(MENAFN- AzerNews) The Azerbaijani Parliament will adopt a declaration on the occasion of the anniversary of the beginning of the Patriotic War.

This issue is included in the agenda of the first plenary meeting of the parliament`s autumn session schedulted for September 30..

A declaration on the anniversary of the beginning of the Patriotic War  will be adopted at the meeting.

On December 2, 2020, President Ilham Aliyev signed an order for the establishment of a Day of Remembrance in Azerbaijan.

In accordance with the decree, September 27 will be marked annually in Azerbaijan as a Day of Remembrance.

The day  is dedicated to the memory of the martyrs who gave their lives in the Patriotic War.

The clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan resumed after Armenia launched large-scale attacks on Azerbaijani forces and civilians on September 27. 

The 44 days of war ended with the Russian brokered peace deal signed on November 10 by the Azerbaijani, Russian and Armenian leaders.  

The peace agreement ended the 30-years-old conflict between Baku and Yerevan over Azerbaijan's Nagorno-Karabakh region that along with the seven adjacent districts came under the occupation of Armenian armed forces in the war in the early 1990s.

For about three decades, Armenia failed to implement the UN Security Council resolutions demanding the withdrawal of the Armenian troops, which was the main obstacle to the resolution of the conflict.
