'Our main attention should be paid to the liberated territories, and the implementation of the first infrastructure projects has already begun in this area. The first project is the road to Shusha. Because the traditional roads to Shusha do not satisfy us enough.' Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev stated this at a meeting dedicated to the results of 2020, Azerbaijan State News Agency informs.

'Yes, we use these roads. But we use these roads being escorted by Russian peacekeepers, both from the Lachin corridor and from the territory of the Qirmizi Bazar settlement. In the future, of course, we will freely use both these roads and the Aghdam-Khankendi-Shusha road. The statement signed on November 10 states that all communications will be opened and after a certain time the use of these roads will not be problematic. But today a new road must be laid to go to Shusha. And we have already given a start to this work. This is a very difficult project, very difficult terrain and, in particular, the current weather conditions do not allow. But the Ahmedbeyli-Alkhanli-Fuzuli-Shusha road is being built, and I believe that it will be built ahead of schedule,' said the president.
