President Ilham Aliyev: So far, tremendous work has been done for families of martyrs and those disabled in the war

“So far, tremendous work has been done as part of our state policy for the families of martyrs and those disabled in the war. Suffice it to say that about 10,000 people of this category have been provided with apartments and private houses by the state. A total of 1,572 apartments were provided last year alone. This year, about 3,000 apartments will be provided, and thus the problem of people waiting in line will be resolved,” said President Ilham Aliyev at a meeting with martyrs and Karabakh war veterans, APA reports.

“At the same time, 50 cars will be presented today. To date, the number of cars presented exceeds 7,000, more precisely, 7,200. More than a thousand citizens of this category will live in the residential complex we are gathered for the opening of today. All conditions are available here. It is a beautiful residential complex and close to the main roads. A school for 1,500 people where we are meeting now, a kindergarten, bright, beautiful and comfortable apartments have been built, and this once again shows the policy pursued by the state.

I must also say that Azerbaijan can be considered an exemplary country in the world in this area. I want to say again that so far about 10,000 citizens have been provided with apartments and private houses. We allocate fairly large funds from the state budget every year to resolve these issues, and this program will be fully implemented in the coming period. Relevant instructions have been given to the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection, and when next year’s budget is approved, of course, this issue will be resolved. I must also say that on the basis of an order I signed yesterday, those who showed heroism in the Second Karabakh War and were awarded the title of hero will be provided with apartments, and the relevant order was signed. All those named Heroes of the Patriotic War will be provided with apartments. The families of martyrs awarded this title will also be provided with apartments,” noted the head of state.
