Garabagh University is established in Khankendi.

Ednews informs that President Ilham Aliyev has signed an Order in this regard.

It is stated in the order that in accordance with the "I State Program on the Great Return to the territories liberated from occupation of the Republic of Azerbaijan" approved by the Decree of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan dated November 16, 2022 No. 3587, the reconstruction, sustainable development of the territories liberated from occupation and those large-scale reconstruction works are carried out to ensure a high standard of living in the areas.
