“Western Azerbaijanis are a community that has been illegally deported many times. Their rights must be restored and they must be able to return to their native lands,” said President Ilham Aliyev in a meeting with a group of intellectuals from Western Azerbaijan.
“When I say this, I can foresee another hysteria in Armenia about Azerbaijan coming and invading them. No! We want to do it peacefully. We want to secure our rights through peaceful means. And let me say again, all conventions recognize this right. Therefore, in order to achieve this, we must also be more active at the international level. I believe that the Community should have a reliable digital platform, a domain. It should contain information about historical facts, our historical sites, palaces, mosques and cities destroyed by the Armenians, facts related to Azerbaijan’s historical heritage erased by the Armenians,” the head of state emphasized.
