It was stressed that the tragedy of January 20 could not break the will of our people, resulted in the declaration of state independence of Azerbaijan in October 1991 and the 31st anniversary of these events was marked in a significant period - as a result of the wise policy and leadership of President, victorious Supreme Commander-in-Chief Ilham Aliyev, our army liberated our lands from the enemy.
