 Azerbaijani President to address the nation on Sept.27 

President Ilham Aliyev will address the nation at 10:00 (GMT +4) on September 27, reports.

September 27 will be marked annually in Azerbaijan as a Day of Remembrance.

The day is dedicated to the memory of the martyrs who gave their lives in the Patriotic War.

The clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan resumed after Armenia launched large-scale attacks on Azerbaijani forces and civilians on September 27. 

The 44 days of war ended with the Russian brokered peace deal signed on November 10 by the Azerbaijani, Russian and Armenian leaders.  

The peace agreement ended the 30-years-old conflict between Baku and Yerevan over Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region that along with the seven adjacent districts came under the occupation of Armenian armed forces in the war in the early 1990s.

For about three decades, Armenia failed to implement the UN Security Council resolutions demanding the withdrawal of the Armenian troops, which was the main obstacle to the resolution of the conflict.
