Armenians have planted more than one million mines during the period of occupation, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said at the opening of the first national urban planning forum in Aghdam, according to Report.

The head of state said that Armenia continues this policy of terror against Azerbaijan and Azerbaijanis.

Now Azerbaijan is facing a tremendous challenge – to return as soon as possible the former refugees and IDPs to their homeland. One of the biggest complications are landmines.

The head of state noted that since the war ended, over 250 Azerbaijanis have been killed or seriously injured as a result of mine explosions.
