    Commanders of the Army Corps and military formations were also involved in the meeting via video teleconference.

    First, the memory of Azerbaijani National Leader Heydar Aliyev and martyrs, who sacrificed their lives for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, as well as the victims of the March 31 – the Day of the Genocide of Azerbaijanis, was honoured by observing a minute of silence.

    The minister said the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has thanked the military personnel involved in the planning and execution of the last operations, and the commandos of the Army Corps for their professionalism, and noted that their activities are highly appreciated.

    He added that the local operations carried out in a short period are another indicator of the high combat determination of the Azerbaijani Army.

    Commenting on the remarks made by those who cannot accept the successful operations of the Azerbaijani Army, the Minister of Defence said that nobody can speak to Azerbaijan in the language of threats, adding that the accusations of the servicemen of some countries supporting terrorism and occupation policy are unacceptable and nonsense.

    The minister analysed the current operational situation on the Azerbaijani-Armenian conditional state border and in the Karabakh economic region, giving appropriate instructions to suppress possible provocations hereinafter.

    Colonel General Hasanov noted that all the illegal activities of the Armenian military, and the illegal Armenian armed detachments must be kept under constant control from now on, and such attempts must not be allowed to be taken in the territory of Azerbaijan in the future.

    He further emphasised the importance of increasing the intensity of exercises and classes held in conditions close to real combat, as well as improving the methods of effective application of modern weapons and military equipment.

    The minister of defence once again reminded the importance of strict compliance with safety rules and necessary measures against fire.

    He conveyed his recommendations to the command staff on increasing attention and care towards the military personnel, keeping their medical care under strict control per the seasonal requirements, and especially being sensitive to the adaptation process of newly recruited conscripts.

    Noting that the constant improvement of service and combat, social-living conditions of personnel plays an important role in the moral-psychological state of military personnel, as well as in maintaining the fighting spirit at a high level, the minister gave additional instructions to continue the work done in this field in a planned manner.

    In the end, Colonel General Hasanov gave specific instructions on the qualitative implementation of engineering support measures in the liberated territories, as well as in the high grounds and positions newly taken under control.
