May God have mercy on all our martyrs.
Today we celebrate Victory Day in Shusha, on the Jidir Duzu plain. All of Azerbaijan celebrates this glorious holiday. Azerbaijan has restored its territorial integrity and restored historical justice. We fulfilled our historical mission by driving the enemy out of our native lands. In 44 days, Azerbaijan won a historic victory by destroying all the fortifications and military positions built by Armenia for 30 years, destroying the Armenian army. This glorious holiday was given to our people by you and tens of thousands of our soldier like you.
The Second Karabakh War is a bright page in our glorious history. The people of Azerbaijan have mobilized all their forces and fulfilled this glorious mission.
Victory Day is our holiday. This is the holiday of Victory, this is the holiday of bravery, this is the holiday of justice, this is the holiday of national pride, the holiday of national dignity. We have restored our dignity. From now on, we will live forever as a victorious country and a victorious nation. From now on we will live forever in Karabakh and Zangazur. If any force in Armenia despises us, if it engages in any revanchist tendencies, it will see our fist. Our fist is in place.
Dear friends, dear people of Azerbaijan!
I would like to congratulate you once again on this glorious holiday. I wish the Azerbaijani Army new victories and the Azerbaijani people new success.
Love to the Azerbaijani Army, love to the Azerbaijani people. Karabakh is ours, Karabakh is Azerbaijan!
