The independence of Azerbaijan was ensured by the liberation of Baku from the Armenian-Bolshevik occupation, the domination of Armenians and Bolsheviks in Baku was terminated.
After a grand historic victory on September 17, the capital of the government of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic was moved from Ganja to Baku. The main stage of state forming in Azerbaijan has begun.
The liberation of Baku from the Bolshevik-Dashnak occupation brought about a real holiday in the city. Well-known millionaire and philanthropist Haji Zeynalabdin Tagiyev organized a solemn banquet in honor of the Turkish army and presented gifts to the commander of the Turkish army, Nuru Pasha, and his heroic generals.
The liberation of Baku on September 15, 1918 can be considered one of the great events of exceptional importance in terms of Azerbaijani-Turkish friendship and brotherhood.
After Azerbaijan gained independence for the second time, every year on September 15, not only in Baku, but also in other regions, Turkish soldiers are honored and the graves of soldiers who died for the territorial integrity of our country are being visited.
