after 30 years that they had their lands have been occupied by iranian forces this is the 1st time they have out for him they have a military with power with more sophisticated weapons at least they have a military back then they didn't have so they believe that along through so a long temporary ceasefire would only help our main years to build up its positions and maybe get some new weaponry from they are allied countries there's the 1st option and most of the civilians who have been mourning for the soldiers that have been killed since september 27th and for the 1st time in their history they believe that they are very strong and especially as of a job president aliyev yesterday said that this is a historical victory for us our base john and by using the military force they were able to bring our mania to the negotiation table and he said the 1st step of a solution to the schools is military then it should be
2:03 pm
a political process and now we are in a town called she talk where i am is is an id peace settlement actually there are 34 buildings and more than 6000 people civilians were living here they were old people who were displaced from their going to cut up in the 9090 s and this compound was actually built by the government for them to settle down but since the beginning of the conflict in september 27 this area has been also targeted several times and most of the buildings are damaged and those people say that we are already displaced and now we are displaced again. the foreign minister of mean years or up. he said that the process of choosing the ceasefire was rather difficult he called it the local media an armenian is calling it a humanitarian cease fire essentially established to allow the exchange of
2:04 pm
prisoners and to allow the exchange of bodies between the militaries of both sides but the foreman says that the prophet priority for us was to put an end to what he called this aggression and he said it was unique because azerbaijan actions have support from turkey. now. the ceasefire came into effect a couple of hours ago there are already reports that it's been breached to what level and to what extent isn't immediately clear although we have been told by the authorities here are not going to care about that the has been shelling of a town called had dropped to the south this might be relevant because yesterday when azerbaijani president. was speaking on television to the nation he said they've taken the town but they haven't not why maybe why they're shelling going on from the azerbaijani side that's the only thing we can assume from that and there
2:05 pm
might have been some other smaller breaches along the line of contact in step and it's been quiet since the cease fire came into effect would not have the air raid sirens we haven't heard of any shelling immediately where we are. let's take you now to north korea west state television is broadcasting footage of a large military parade to mark the 75th anniversary of the ruling workers' poncy a much anticipated event was held unusually pre-dawn in the capital pyongyang when it comes amid deadlocked nuclear talks with the u.s. . let's get some thoughts on this from robert right he's live for us in seoul 1st of all rob we're all watching replays on the state television now kim jong un has been given a very long speech what do we know about what he's been saying. that's right it was a very broad ranging speech it came after we saw what was a very impressive parade by military through the streets of floodlit pyongyang as
2:06 pm
you mentioned there it is very unusual that an event like this would take place we believe it was in the very early hours of this saturday morning and we believe it could well be the 1st time they've held a parade at such a time so the main square in the central p.r. gang filled with all of these squads of different troops from the different services of north korea's military and then we had this very long wide ranging speech by kim jong un saying how he was a stream the overwhelmed extremely thankful to the soldiers to the people and overwhelmed by this event and indeed you do sense that times he was actually fighting back to tears now you know in these in these big speeches these big set pieces obviously we see a lot of tears from the spectators soldiers who are there it's almost a way of showing your loyalty to the leadership but we did a lot of emotion coming from kim jong un him self it is something that has been
2:07 pm
noted in his style of leadership on like his father who very rarely was heard ever to speak kim jong un has become actually quite an accomplished orator and there's been noted that he speaks in quite humble terms of human to human which does connect to people so we heard him talk about all of the problems that north korea has faced through this incredible year mentioning about the natural disasters that have befall the north korea we've had these incredible typhoons also specifically and most important of course is covert 19 now north korea still insisted has not had a single case of covert 90 and kim jong un put that down to the strength the result of the people in keeping this virus out and also conveying his best wishes to the rest of the world who is who the rest of the world to the peoples of the world who are indeed tackling it so it is very much a reminder to the world that he is. much in charge and as far as north korea is concerned they are still insisting that they have managed to remain coronavirus
2:08 pm
free and what these crazy usually used to display military hardware we haven't seen such a display yet is are still going on and seen quite a few horses and a couple of tanks only but what are we looking out for. people have been speculating about the different weapons systems we know the north koreans have been working on of course all of these last few years that we've been having dialogue back and forth and signing pieces of paper committing the korean peninsula to a nuclear free future and north korea of course hasn't dismantled one single bit of its nuclear arsenal in fact has been busily working the way it's avoided provocative steps like the nuclear tests or launching of longer range intercontinental ballistic missiles but it's continuing to be working quite happily on all its other weapons programs developing nuclear material etc and so we were expecting maybe that they were going to show some of them or develop systems the
2:09 pm
broadcast of this parade is still going on live at the moment on north korean television it may well be that they will be showing us some weapon systems or it may well be as in the conciliatory tone of kim jong un speech they're looking to avoid controversy that they're looking to show the world that they're very much a united people the remain free of this. 90 and that they're not a force that threatens anybody he's talked about the military simply being there for self-defense and waiting to see what happens with the u.s. election not wanting to upset things there they would like to see a return of donald trump i think they're probably accepting that maybe he won't be returned to power but waiting to see what comes next from the united states very interesting indeed on the right thanks for helping us make sense of that very secretive state of korea. taiwan's president says she's willing to hold talks with
2:10 pm
