READ MORE: Azerbaijan has announced the capture of a key city in the Nagorno-Karabakh enclave, but Armenia has denied the claim.

Speaking to the nation on television Sunday, Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev said that Azerbaijani forces had taken Shushi (Shusha in Azeri), the second-largest city in the disputed territory.

“The city of Shusha has been liberated from occupation. Shusha is ours. Karabakh is ours," Aliyev said, adding that his country will continue its fight until Armenian forces withdraw from the territory.

Aliyev’s statement prompted celebration in Azerbaijan’s capital, Baku, where people were waving flags and chanting slogans, and drivers sounded their car horns.

The Armenian Defense Ministry denied that Shushi was captured but confirmed heavy fighting in and around the city.
