It is our duty to support the education life of this ancient Turkish city, which cannot be neglected", Bahcheli highlighted.

"If our President Recep Tayyip Erdogan gives permission, and if the President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev finds it appropriate, our goal is to build a 9-class primary school in Shusha by the Idealist Hearths Education and Culture Foundation on my personal instructions. All the possibilities we have in this regard will be mobilized and the necessary will be done immediately", he added.
