It was noted that the mass resettlement of Armenians to Azerbaijani territories began after the Turkmenchay Treaty signed between Russia and Iran on February 10, 1828. In 1828-1829 alone, 40,000-50,000 Armenians came from Iran and 90,000 from Turkey to Azerbaijan.

The newspaper says: "... Armenians erected a monument 'Maraga-150' on the occasion of their arrival in Karabakh. The Maragha-150 monument was built in 1978 by the Armenians on the 150th anniversary of the resettlement of the first 200 families from Maraga in Iran to Karabakh. The inscription "Maraga-150" in Armenian is written on the monument made of river stones, and similar monuments were built in Khankendi city, Chayli village of Tartar region.
