Zangilan is indeed a land of enchanting nature. I first came to Zangilan at the end of last year, in December, and I fell in love with it. Magnificent mountains, green forests, rivers, climate – this is truly one of the most beautiful places in Azerbaijan, and our goal is to rebuild Zangilan. Because there is nothing left of the old Zangilan. As you can see, the loathsome enemy has destroyed almost all the buildings, President Ilham Aliyev said, speaking at the meeting with the Zangilan district general public on October 20, Report informs, citing AzerTag.

“There are several buildings left, and the military was stationed in them. All the other buildings, all the buildings of the villages, were destroyed so that we could not return here. But we have returned! Our glorious army raised the Azerbaijani flag in Zangilan exactly a year ago and drove the enemy out of these lands. After the liberation of Zangilan, our road to Gubadli was clear, and Gubadli was liberated five days later. And then, we accessed the Lachin corridor. When we accessed the Lachin corridor, the enemy knew that there was no point in resisting any further.
