“It is with great joy that I inform you that Lachin district has been liberated from occupation. I cordially congratulate all the people of Azerbaijan on this occasion. The liberation of Lachin from occupation is a historical event. Moreover, we have returned the Lachin region without firing a single shot. We have forced the enemy to do this. The bright victory won on the battlefield has led to this remarkable result – three of our districts, Aghdam, Kalbajar, and Lachin, have been returned. We have returned these districts without firing a single shot and without a single martyr,” President Ilham Aliyev said in his address to the nation.
