Rovshan Rzayev, chairman of the State Committee for Affairs of Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons and Wolfgang Manig, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Federal Republic of Germany to our country visited Shusha, the cultural capital of our country.

It was brought to the attention that Azerbaijan put an end to the occupation of aggressive Armenia in the 44-day Patriotic War, created an opportunity for IDPs to return to their native lands, and on the basis of the instructions of the head of our state, necessary measures were taken to ensure their voluntary, dignified and safe return.

It was noted that along with the reconstruction of the infrastructure, the city's historical and cultural monuments are being restored. He also got acquainted with reconstruction carried out at school No. 1 where Irma Weber, an ethnic German from Shusha, taught.

Chairman of the State Committee German scientist Michael Hess presented the book “The Heritage of Shusha. History and development path of the cultural capital of Azerbaijan” to the ambassador.
