A UN delegation got acquainted with territories where the
restoration work is being carried out in Azerbaijan's liberated
Agdam District, Azernews reports.
During the tour, the guests were briefed about the progress of
restoration work and further plans for the construction of a
residential complex, a mugham center, a museum, and other
facilities in the district.
They were also informed that the ruins in the destroyed city
center are planned to be left as an open-air memorial.
The UN representatives are on a visit to Azerbaijan's Aghdam
where they attended strategic consultations on cooperation between
Azerbaijan and the UN.
The event was attended by more than 35 government officials and
UN representatives. Measures were discussed to accelerate the
achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals by Azerbaijan, the
reconstruction work in the liberated territories, environmental
protection, and efficient use of water resources.
A tree-planting action was held by the participants in the city
of Agdam within the framework of the Heydar Aliyev Year.
Currently, work is underway to restore Azerbaijan's liberated
lands. Azerbaijan will rebuild its recently liberated areas in four
stages. The initial stage includes the solution to the issues of
governance and security, and infrastructure, while the subsequent
stages include the solution to the issues of social services
activities, reconstruction, and development of the economy.
“Azerbaijan is restoring life in vast areas Armenia has
completely destroyed. We are building nine new cities and initially
more than 300 villages and towns from scratch. This is a rare and
unprecedented model of post-conflict reconstruction by a national
government using its own financial resources. In 2021-2022, the
state of Azerbaijan spent about $4bn on reconstruction in liberated
areas. This year, we plan to allocate at least $1.7bn,” the
Azerbaijani president said in Ankara.
