Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Agdam revival: Azerbaijani government wants to transform the city” – below is their description.
Agdam was once a bustling city, home to about 40,000 people before Armenian forces took it in 1993.
Since then, the area has been a buffer zone.
Nearly 30 years later, when Azerbaijani forces entered Agdam, they found it deserted.
But plans for revival could mean it becomes a home again.
The Azerbaijani government says it is determined to transform regained territories like Agdam into areas of high-tech development based on what it calls the “smart city” concept.
But that could take years.
Al Jazeera’s Resul Serdar reports from Agdam, Azerbaijan.
