Islamabad, 28 September 2021 (TDI): To show solidarity with Azerbaijan especially on National Commemoration day, Pakistan Monument in Islamabad was illuminated with Azerbaijan Flag.
Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan to Pakistan hosted a Commemoration Day Ceremony in Islamabad highlighting the memory of Azerbaijani Martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. This day is celebrated in Azerbaijan on 27th September by the order of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Over a year ago, the Armenian armed forces launched military provocation against Azerbaijan. As a retaliation, Azerbaijan had to take steps within the framework of its right to self-defence to prevent military aggression and ensure the security of its civilian population. Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani was the chief guest of the occasion while a large number of parliamentarians and journalists participated in the event.
It is important to note that this was the 44-day Patriotic War that put an end to Armenia’s nearly 30-year occupation of occupied territories of Azerbaijan. This Patriotic War under the leadership of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Azerbaijan, President İlham Aliyev ended with a victory of the brave Azerbaijani Army. It opened a new era in the history of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
New realities have emerged in the region, and international justice has been established. Azerbaijan has ensured its territorial integrity by implementing the relevant UN Security Council resolutions of 1993. The fundamental rights of about one million displaced Azerbaijanis have been restored.
The Government of Azerbaijan is carrying out restoration and reconstruction works in the liberated territories and taking consistent steps to ensure the safe and dignified return of nearly one million displaced Azerbaijanis, as well as the reintegration of these lands. The Government is also taking all necessary measures to ensure lasting peace, security, and prosperity in the region in accordance with the Trilateral Statement of November 10, 2020.
The Patriotic War under the leadership of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Azerbaijan, President İlham Aliyev that ended with a victory of the brave Azerbaijani Army, opened a new era in the history of the Republic of Azerbaijan, established international justice and changed the realities in the region.
Azerbaijan is ready to normalize relations with Armenia, on the basis of strict observance of the principles of international law, in particular sovereignty, territorial integrity, and inviolability of international borders. We call on Armenia to respect these fundamental principles to ensure peace, security, and prosperity in the region and comply with its international obligations.
