Azer News - - Karabakh Conflict - By Ab­dul Ker­imkhanov

Turkey in­tends to build a sou­venir fac­tory in the vil­lage of Jo­jug Mar­janli of the Jabrayil re­gion of Azer­bai­jan, Turk­ish am­bas­sador Erkan Ozo­ral said on Oc­to­ber 6.

The project was ini­ti­ated by the Turk­ish In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion and De­vel­op­ment Agency (TIKA), said Ozo­ral.

He noted that at present, within the frame­work of the works im­ple­mented by TIKA in the vil­lage, green­houses and bee­keep­ing farms have been es­tab­lished and are func­tion­ing. At the same time, work is cur­rently un­der­way on the con­struc­tion of a sou­venir fac­tory, the am­bas­sador con­cluded.

As part of the joint projects of the Min­istry of Econ­omy of Azer­bai­jan and the Turk­ish Em­bassy in the vil­lage of Jo­jug Mar­janli, 15 tun­nel­type green­houses with an area of 160 square me­ters each have been in­stalled. Green­houses are equipped with a drip ir­ri­ga­tion sys­tem, seeds, fer­til­iz­ers and pes­ti­cides, tools and equip­ment for plant care are handed over to users. In ad­di­tion, 10 bee colonies, var­i­ous api­cul­tural equip­ment and ma­te­ri­als were trans­ferred to 15 fam­i­lies of the vil­lage.

In the frame­work of projects im­ple­mented by the Min­istry of Econ­omy to­gether with the Turk­ish Em­bassy in Azer­bai­jan, sales of prod­ucts man­u­fac­tured in green­houses and bee­keep­ing farms es­tab­lished in the vil­lage of Jo­jug Mar­janli have al­ready be­gun.

The im­ple­men­ta­tion of projects is of great im­por­tance in pro­vid­ing em­ploy­ment in the vil­lage and in the so­cio-eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of the dis­trict.

Jo­jug Mar­janli vil­lage was oc­cu­pied by the Ar­me­nian armed forces in 1993. About 1,000 vil­lagers were forced to leave their homes, es­cap­ing bul­lets.

As a re­sult of the Ho­radiz op­er­a­tion car­ried out in 1994, it was lib­er­ated from the Ar­me­nian oc­cu­pa­tion.

Due to the fact that un­til April 2016, the strate­gic high­land of Leletepe was un­der the oc­cu­pa­tion of the Ar­me­nian army, it was im­pos­si­ble to live in the vil­lage of Jo­jug Mar­janli. How­ever, af­ter the lib­er­a­tion of the hills by the Armed Forces of Azer­bai­jan, con­di­tions were cre­ated for safe liv­ing in the vil­lage.

The first stage of re­cov­ery is the dem­i­ning of the ter­ri­tory of the vil­lage from mines and un­ex­ploded shells. The work is in full swing and the roads to the vil­lage have al­ready been cleared.

Pres­i­dent Il­ham Aliyev signed a de­cree to re­store the vil­lage of Jo­jug Mar­janli. Ini­tially 50 houses and a school build­ing for al­most 100 places were built, the cor­re­spond­ing in­fra­struc­ture was cre­ated. Res­i­dents will cre­ate there their farms, and will be en­gaged in agri­cul­tural work.

An­other 100 houses, a kinder­garten, a first-aid post and other nec­es­sary so­cial in­fra­struc­ture fa­cil­i­ties will be built in the vil­lage of Jo­jug Mar­janli. To this end, 9 mil­lion man­ats ($5.3 mil­lion) has been al­lo­cated from the re­serve fund of the Pres­i­dent of Azer­bai­jan to the State Com­mit­tee for Refugees and Forced Mi­grants.
