(MENAFN- Trend News Agency) BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 28. Liberation of Lachin
and the timing of our meeting here today have a symbolic meaning,
President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said, while
meeting the natives of the Lachin city, trend reports.
"The liberation of Lachin and the timing of our meeting here
today also have a symbolic meaning. In May, Lachin was occupied,
and the people of Lachin have returned to Lachin also in May –
true, after 31 years, but we are back.
In April 1993, Kalbajar was occupied as a result of the
treachery of the forces that were aspiring to power and had already
seized it. In April, we fully restored our territorial integrity by
establishing a border checkpoint on the Azerbaijan-Armenia border
in the direction of Lachin. So there is a link between these
dates," President Ilham Aliyev said.
