problems because we are living in the bank of river".

Azerbaijan. "He had secondary education. He couldn’t use such phrases.
We think my father was under pressure when he said that didn’t want
to return home and planned to go to the third country".

as a result of ceasefire violation by Armenians at about 18.00 on

village of Tovuz region.
Tagiyev was interviewed by the Armenian Public Television. News
Armenia agency reports that Tagiyev said he didn’t intend to return
to Azerbaijan and would like to move to third country if Armenian
government wouldn’t allow him to be there. He said he would like to
inform his family about his plans.
Tagiyev said he was unemployed and lived in poor conditions and
couldn’t keep a farm because of water problem.
Eldar Tagiyev said earlier Armenia supplied his hometown – Alibeyli
village of Tovuz region with water.
