In the time when Republic of Azerbaijan gained its independence, it has already been in the condition of war with the Republic of Armenia. Armenians who had territorial claims to the territory of Azerbaijan for the whole history occupied part of our lands along with some other forces desiring separate and divide our country, take its independence.

Those years the people, who were in the government of Azerbaijan showed their disrespectability and unreliability, didn't manage to establish Armed Forces.
