The reconstruction process has already started in the Azerbaijani city of Aghdam, liberated from Armenian occupation, and the city is unrecognizable, Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan, Head of the Foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration Hikmet Hajiyev said.

On Sunday, Hajiyev, together with representatives of the diplomatic corps accredited in Azerbaijan, visited Aghdam. 

He noted that this is the second time foreign diplomats are visiting Aghdam since it was liberated.

“We can see that the reconstruction process has already started in Aghdam. I myself couldn’t recognize many things, a lot of things have changed,” Hajiyev said. 

He pointed out that Aghdam is known as the Hiroshima of the Caucasus.

“However it is the strategy of Azerbaijan, President Ilham Aliyev to make the Aghdam city into one of the most beautiful cities of the region and most importantly to provide for the safe return of IDPs and inhabitants of Aghdam back after nearly 30 years,” Hajiyev added.
