Year passes since liberation of Azerbaijan's Kalbajar from Armenian occupation
Today marks the first anniversary of the liberation of the Kalbajar District from the occupation of the Armenian armed forces.
SİA informs that in conformity with the trilateral statement signed by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on November 10, 2020, Kalbajar was to be returned to Azerbaijan on November 15, 2020.
However, Armenia demanded an additional 10 days to evacuate the troops in the area and illegal settlers from the district. Therefore, the Azerbaijani state, once again driven by principles of humanism, extended the deadline until November 25, taking into account the request of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The aggressor Armenian armed forces occupied the Kalbajar District on April 2, 1993. As a result of the occupation, 53,340 people were displaced, 55 servicemen and 511 civilians were killed, 321 people were taken hostage and went missing, and thousands were injured.
After the occupation of Kalbajar by the Armenian armed forces, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 822. The resolution of the international organization demanded the immediate withdrawal of all occupying forces from Kalbajar and other occupied districts of Azerbaijan. However, like other resolutions, this document also remained unfulfilled. The 27-year long unfulfilled demand of the international organization, made up of hundreds of states, was realized by the Azerbaijani army in just 44 days.
The withdrawal of the occupying Armenian armed forces from Kalbajar was possible due to the political leadership, generalship of Azerbaijani President, victorious Supreme Commander-in-Chief Ilham Aliyev, and successful military operations of the Azerbaijani army in the second patriotic war.
