Huseynov praised Imam Khamenei’s speech where he supported Azerbaijan’s sovereignty over the Nagorno-Karabakh, saying that His Excellency’s support was tantamount to a valuable gift to the Azeri nation.
Huseynov emphasized that under the great leadership of Imam Khamenei’s and with the unity of the Azerbaijani and Iranian nations, Azerbaijan shall be successful in reconstructing the war-ravaged Karabakh.
