I declare the city of Shusha the cultural capital of Azerbaijan. The city of Shusha deserves this. I believe that Shusha can be considered the cultural capital of not only Azerbaijan but also the region. This was stated by the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.
Noting that the work on the restoration of Shusha has already started, the head of state said: “An audit of the housing stock, historical monuments must be carried out, the damage done must be accurately calculated, and we must begin the restoration of the city of Shusha. Again, without wasting time, but at the same time without haste, the original historical appearance of Shusha must be restored. “
