Azerbaijani former IDPs really want to return to their lands, Anna Soave, program management officer at UN-HABITAT (United Nations Human Settlements Program), told Report.

She said that the process of rebuilding infrastructure at the post-conflict stage in Iraq and Azerbaijan is very different: “The main difference is that in Iraq we were rebuilding territories where people partially lived. Many houses were destroyed, but people still had documents for their plots and they wanted to return to these territories. In general, people in Azerbaijan really want to return to their lands, and I was very happy to hear about the program for their return.”
