The Second Karabakh War will go down in history as Azerbaijan's glorious Victory. All our people have shown unity and solidarity in achieving this Victory. All the steps taken were aimed at inflicting crushing blows to the enemy with minimum losses and force the enemy to vacate our lands in a short span of time. Victory on the battlefield also led to Victory in the political arena. If we had not won this Victory on the battlefield, I do not believe that the occupier would have vacated the remaining lands. The enemy, trying to occupy our lands for almost 30 years in various ways, wanted to perpetuate this occupation. We could not achieve any results through negotiations. We won the war because of our martyrs' sacrifices, our servicemen's courage, and our state's policy.
This Victory will remain in the history of Azerbaijan forever. Both on the battlefield and at the negotiating table, we were able to achieve what we wanted. We were able to liberate the cities of Fuzuli, Jabrayil, Zangilan, Gubadli, and Shusha using military force. We raised our flag in those lands. Our flag flies there now. Today, the whole world sees what Azerbaijan is capable of. In the political sphere and army building, we gained superiority from the first days of the war, thanks to our servicemen's professionalism, and consistently advanced towards the ultimate goal.
