Speaking to journalists, Arzu Samadova, a ministry official, said the Arazboyu State Nature Reserve in the district covers an area of 2,200 square meters.
“The reserve was established a few months before the occupation of Zangilan with the aim of protecting Tugay forests along the Araz River. Unfortunately, the course of the Araz River was changed by Armenians. Up to 1,500 hectares of Tugay forests were destroyed in this area,” she added.
