The statement, which literally means the capitulation of Armenia, undoubtedly formalized the glorious victory of the Azerbaijani people in the just struggle that has lasted for 30 years, both militarily and politically.

Undoubtedly, this important political and military victory of Azerbaijan marks the beginning of a new stage in its history. At the expense of the will of the President and the blood of our martyrs, we are entering this new historical stage as a victorious people, a victorious country.
