From the first day of its establishment, the International Eurasia Press Fund (IEPF), has done its best to study the realities of Karabakh, the role of Karabakh's history, economy, culture and secular nature in the history of Azerbaijan and bring it to the attention of the international community, organisations and missions.

According to its recent research, a significant part of the vineyards belonged to the Karabakh region. Thus, in 1975-80, the area of vineyards in the Karabakh region was about 79,000 hectares. There were 105 primary grape processing plants in Azerbaijan.

Besides that, more than 60 percent of the viticulture products produced in Azerbaijan fell to the Karabakh region. Even at that time, grape production in the Karabakh zone reached 294,000 tons.

Ednews reports that Tabrizi, Garaburun, Agadayi, Asgari, Gara shani, Ag Shani were the main grape varieties in Karabakh. The most widespread of the technical varieties were Madrasa, Bayanshira, Hamashara, Hindogni, Molayi, Tavkveri. Many of these wines have won international competitions and various awards. It was exported to all the republics of the the former Soviet Union.

More than 100,000 tons of grapes were produced annually in Fuzuli region alone.

In the development of viticulture in Azerbaijan, decisions of Azerbaijan’s national leader Heydar Aliyev on measures to further specialize agricultural production and the development of viticulture and winemaking played an important role.

Unfortunately, since the early 1990s, more than 45,000 hectares of vineyards in Karabakh have been destroyed as a result of Armenian occupation, and those areas have been contaminated with mines and turned into a dangerous zone for human life.

Although the lands of Azerbaijan were liberated from occupation in late 2020, the threat of landmines pose a threat to human life, socio-economic development, and continues to paralise valuable agricultural lands.

Today, the establishment of an international mine action platform, the involvement of the most advanced international organizations in mine action programs, are important factors for peace, security and socio-economic development.

It is time to eliminate the destruction caused by wars, to heal the lands torn by shells and mines, to build new gardens and new life in collaboration with the Roots of Peace.
