At the beginning of his speech, Parvin Gozalov noted that as a result of the historic victory of the armed forces of Azerbaijan, the Commander-in-Chief and the people of Azerbaijan in the Second Karabakh War (09/27/2020-11/08/2020), the historical lands of Azerbaijan, occupied by Armenia for 30 years, were liberated. As a result of a tripartite agreement between the Republic of Azerbaijan, the Russian Federation and Armenia, a ceasefire agreement was adopted, and the Azerbaijani historical lands remaining in occupation were returned to Azerbaijan without a fight, and this event is the capitulation of Armenia. It was noted that, as a result of the historic victory of Azerbaijan, stability and development in the region meet the interests of major powers. The report then highlighted the genetic similarity of the historical banners of Azerbaijan, which is a clear proof of the history of statehood, with the banners of the Ganja Khanate and the banners of the Ottoman Empire.
