Ilham Aliyev: 'Azerbaijani flag will fly in Shusha and Khankendi'


'Armenians should make the right conclusion. Armenians should know that we will never accept the present situation. We will restore the territorial integrity of our country at any cost. For this we are pursuing a successful policy. Every day, every year, we are approaching this day. The flag of Azerbaijan will be flown in Shusha and Khankendi, just as it is flying today in Leletepe and Agdere,' said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev delivering a speech at the national celebration on the occasion of Novruz festival.

Ilham Aliyev noted that today every citizen of Azerbaijan, who loves his Motherland, is rightfully proud of it.

'We are defending our own culture, art, native language, festivals. The 25-year period of independence showed that only states built on national roots can succeed. Such states have a future. Azerbaijani values, our national and moral values are above all for us. I am glad that the younger generation is being brought up in this spirit, in the spirit of patriotism, in the national spirit,' said the head of state.

'Armenia does not want to liberate the occupied Azerbaijani territories and boycotts the negotiation process. Karabakh is the historical Azerbaijani land. International law supports our position. We have a higher economic and military potential. Therefore, Armenia should make the right conclusion,' said President Ilham Aliyev.
