Based on the remarks made by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and the military potential of the Azerbaijani army, during the event dedicated to the 95th birth anniversary of the national leader Heydar Aliyev, the defense minister set specific tasks for officials.

Thoroughly analyzing the current situation at the front, the minister ordered to keep under constant control the activities of the enemy on the front line and in deep defense, to be ready for its possible actions and also to take resolute measures to immediately prevent possible provocations by the enemy.

Zakir Hasanov also expressed his opinion regarding the irresponsible statements made by various officials, including the newly elected prime minister of Armenia after the change of power in the country.
