BAKU: President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev outlined tasks and announced plans for 2021 at a meeting dedicated to the results of 2020.
As the head of state noted, the main task to be solved in 2021 is the restoration of the liberated territories.
First of all, 2020 was the year of Victory for Azerbaijan. Finally, an end was put to the 30-year longing for the native land. The task of paramount importance was the liberation of the occupied territories. The Azerbaijani army under the leadership of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief accomplished this in the course of a successful counter-offensive operation.
Undoubtedly, one of the main obstacles for starting work in the liberated territories is their mining by Armenia. Measures are being taken to speed up the clearance of the liberated areas. On the instruction of President Ilham Aliyev, the Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA) will be reorganized in the coming days.
After complete demining, recovery work can begin. The initial question before remediation work begins is to calculate the damage inflicted.
Along with this process, documentation or, so to speak, certification, will be carried out in these territories by using drones. After that, the damage caused to the property will be assessed.
In addition to the damage caused, the lost income will be calculated, that is, the income that Azerbaijan could receive from these enterprises over these 30 years.
A certain part, a quarter in each city of Azerbaijan will be kept in ruins as an open-air museum of the Armenian occupation. In all the liberated cities, similar museums will be created, which will reflect the general picture of the occupation policy of Armenia.
According to the order of Azerbaijan’s president, houses and apartments, intended for the provision of IDPs in Baku, Ganja, Sumgayit, and other cities, will be transferred to the families of the Azerbaijani martyrs.
