20 August 2023 [10:00] - TODAY.AZ

In accordance with the order of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, the return of former IDPs to the reconstructed city of Lachin continues, Azernews reports.

On August 16, a group of former IDPs made up of 13 families or 45 people left Gobu Park 3 residential complex in the Garadagh district, Baku for the Lachin city.

To recall that 750,000 people were obliged to leave their hometowns in the 1990s due to the Armenian aggression and the invasion of 20 percent of Azerbaijan’s territory. As a result of the victory won by the Azerbaijani army under the leadership of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, it was possible for IDPs to return to their homeland voluntarily, safely, and with dignity after 30 years.

The residents of Lachin City expressed their gratitude to President Ilham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva for being surrounded by comprehensive state care, to the brave Azerbaijani Army and to the Azerbaijani heroic soldiers and officers that liberated Azerbaijani lands from occupation, and commemorated the martyrs.

The families will settle in the houses where they used to live in Lachin before the Armenian invasion, which was restored or rebuilt based on the instructions of the head of state after liberation.

With this, 234 families, i.e. 904 people, were permanently settled in Lachin City.
