I sincerely congratulate all my dear Azerbaijani brothers and sisters, especially Your Excellency, on behalf of the Turkish nation and myself, on the occasion of the third anniversary of the Victory, when ancient Azerbaijani lands that were occupied for decades were returned to the Motherland.

I am very proud to celebrate this blessed Victory Day in 2023, the year of the 100th anniversary of the establishment of our republic and the birth of National Leader Heydar Aliyev.

The anti-terror operation you carried out with high precision in Karabakh this September crowned this unique victory achieved through hard work and dedication and under your supreme command. The glorious flag of Azerbaijan raised by Your Excellency now flies in the skies of the Motherland and has become a source of great joy and happiness for the Republic of Türkiye and the entire Turkic world.

I pray for God’s mercy to all our Azerbaijani brothers who died for the homeland, remember them with respect, and express my gratitude to our veterans.

I want to emphasize that I am following with appreciation the ongoing restoration and reconstruction works in the liberated districts and that we, as Türkiye, will always continue to be by your side in this matter, as indeed in everything else.

With the strength we derive from the unbreakable bonds of our brotherhood and alliance embodied in the “One nation, two states” motto, the concept of “Unity in joy and sorrow” crowned by the Shusha Declaration we signed together with Your Excellency, together we will take all steps, with the peace and prosperity of our countries, necessary to establish lasting peace and stability in the South Caucasus, as we have done so far.

We don’t need a new war, we have achieved what we wanted – President Ilham Aliyev

BAKU: We don’t need a new war, we have achieved what we wanted, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in a speech at a military parade held in the city of Khankendi on the occasion of November 8 – Victory Day.

“Four years ago, while speaking at the Khankendi City Stadium, the prime minister of Armenia arrogantly said: “Karabakh is Armenia, full stop!” We showed him and those like him, as well as those behind them, that he was on the wrong path – by shedding blood on the battlefield and giving martyrs. We showed to them that Karabakh is Azerbaijan – by fighting in spite of everything, and today everyone should know that no one can joke with us. If the Armenian leadership cherishes some revanchist sentiments, if the countries that are used to manipulations behind Armenia still prepare some insidious plans against Azerbaijan, let them take a look at today’s parade. Let them know that more than a thousand of our brave men are lined up here, and we have more than 100,000 brave men like them. No force can threaten us. We are ready to fight on any level, we have shown this on the political and, if necessary, on the military front. In the 21st century, no army has shown as much professionalism and dedication as ours. No nation has loved its native land as much as ours and was ready to die for it. We all know this well, so let the world know it too.

We don’t need a new war. We have achieved what we wanted, we have restored international law, we have restored historical justice, we have restored our national dignity, and we have shown the enemy where it belongs. The enemy has knelt before us, and today I am here addressing the Victorious Armed Forces. So, we have fulfilled all the tasks, but at the same time, from now on, the army building will be one of the priority issues for us. Let everyone know this and let no one forget it,” said President Ilham Aliyev.

BAKU: We have been moving towards this day for 20 years. Preparations were underway, Azerbaijan’s position at the level of international law was being strengthened, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in a speech at a military parade held in the city of Khankendi on the occasion of November 8 – Victory Day.

“As a result of our successful activity at the political level, the whole world already began to realize that we are the right side. The reforms we carried out in the economic field allowed us the opportunity to build an independent economy, not to depend on anyone and to build our own life. Strong political resolve made it possible to conduct an independent foreign policy, pursue a domestic policy and not allow anyone to interfere in our own affairs,” President Ilham Aliyev said.

The head of state pointed out that army building was certainly considered the top priority and said that the main factors leading Azerbaijan to Victory were the material and technical provision, the supply of weapons and ammunition, the improvement of the army’s fighting capacity and, above all, the education of youth in the spirit of patriotism.
