Those who want to erase the history of Azerbaijan have been taught that they are heroes, but in fact, they are criminals. There are other examples of Shaumyan and others who killed Azerbaijanis and committed genocide. Thus, we want the younger generation to know that Zangazur is a historical territory of Azerbaijan.
Axar.az reports this statement was expressed by President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev in his speech at the conference "A new look at the South Caucasus: post-conflict development and cooperation" held at ADA University.
Emphasizing that Zangazur is the territory of ancient Azerbaijan, President Ilham Aliyev said: “Zangazur was given to Armenia in 1920, 101 years ago. Before that, this area belonged to us. When I say Goycha, they now call it Sevan Lake. This is a fact. It is enough to look at a map of the early 20th century. You will not see Sevan while looking there. You will see Goycha there. The same notion goes for Yerevan too. They destroyed the historical part of Yerevan. It is a clear fact that Azerbaijanis, including my ancestors, lived there."
The head of state noted that this is a fact. However, this does not mean that we have territorial claims:
"I said, yes, we will return there. I did not say that we would return there with tanks. I said we will return. That means why not. If we return to the Zangazur corridor if we use this road, why don't we return to Yerevan? When the time will come, we will do it. I present my position."
