Azerbaijani soldiers entered on Tuesday the Lachin region following 28 years of occupation by Armenian forces and hoisted Azerbaijan’s national flag in the city center.
“LONG LIVE AZERBAIJAN, KARABAKH IS AZERBAIJAN”
In images shared by Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry, the commander of the soldiers entering the city addressed President Ilham Aliyev in front of the building where the flag was hung, saying: “Dear commander-in-chief, the Azerbaijani flag is flying in the city of Lachin. Long live Azerbaijan. Long live the commander-in-chief. Karabakh is Azerbaijan.”
