“Life is coming back to Zangilan!” tweeted Israeli Ambassador George Deek. “Today I released Trout baby fish to the Hakari river, from which they will flow along the Araz river. As these small fish will grow, so will Karabakh, and with it Israel-Azerbaijan relations” (Photo: @GeorgeDeek)

Zangilan is one of the 66 districts of Azerbaijan. It is a part of the East Zangezur Economic Region and is situated in the southwest of the nation. Because of its location, soil, and climate, the Zangilan region has a fascinatingly beautiful and diverse natural environment. The region has a complicated, broken surface and falls within the category of medium and low mountains. In the city center’s museums, there were hundreds of exhibits.

With the conquest of Zangilan on October 29, 1993, Armenian aggressors finished occupying 20% of Azerbaijani territory. On October 20, 2020, Azerbaijan retook it as part of the Karabakh war.

Zangilan’s location alongside the Baku-Nakhchivan-Julfa railway makes it strategically significant. More than 35,000 people were residing in Zangilan, which has a land area of 707 square kilometers, prior to the takeover. Agriculture, including livestock raising, winemaking, and tobacco cultivation, were the backbone of the area’s economy.

After the liberation of Zangilan from occupation, the agricultural sector of Zangilan attracted the attention of Israeli companies and experts.

In June 2021, Israel’s Ambassador George Deek had announced the start of the Azerbaijan-Israel-Italy cooperation project to turn the liberated Zangilan region into a ‘smart city’. According to the project, Israeli companies were supposed to start construction of a farm that would produce dairy products, mainly milk, using Israeli technologies.

In addition, the construction of a buffalo farm was to be carried out in Azerbaijan by Israel. The farm would start out with 300 to 400 cattle heads and eventually grow to 1,000 cattle heads. The farm would import buffaloes from Italy. The plan was to establish a fully equipped dairy farm for buffaloes in the Zangilan area to produce mozzarella, burrata, and other high-quality buffalo cheeses.

In their visit, Deek offered his views about the progress of “smart village” of Agali in the Zangilan region. Now that it is equipped with technology and the know-how of Israeli companies, the expanding alliance of Azerbaijan and Israel relations ensures food security for both nations.

However, this can be taken a step further. There is no reason why Israel and Azerbaijan cannot collaborate to improve the country’s agricultural industry.

Israeli technologies like greenhouses, drip irrigation, various spices and cereals, would help Azerbaijan flourish. There are also the fertilizers Israel has created and utilizes.

This will allow further cooperation in the agricultural sector and will help to make up for the shortages that Israel has experienced in the wake of the war in Ukraine.
