President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev, during his speech at the informal summit of the Turkic Council on March 31, congratulated Ilham Aliyev on the return of the territories of Nagorno-Karabakh.

“Taking this opportunity, I once again congratulate the President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, and the Azerbaijani people on the return of the territories of Nagorno-Karabakh and the restoration of historical justice. Uzbekistan is ready to contribute to the restoration of ancient monuments, objects of culture and education on the land of Nagorno-Karabakh,” Mirziyoyev said.

The situation in the conflict zone around Nagorno-Karabakh escalated on September 27, 2020, and active hostilities began there. Then Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan adopted a trilateral document, according to which, from November 10, a complete ceasefire was announced in Nagorno-Karabakh.
