Heydar Aliyev devoted all his life to the prosperity of Azerbaijan, implementation of magnificent projects, improving the overall well-being of the people and today he lives on in the hearts of millions as the true criterion of the countrie’s formation. H. Aliyev has engraved in our people’s memory since 1969 when he was elected as a leader of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan was not recognized as a part of Soviet Union until 1969.Until that date, the people of Azerbaijan were subjected to genocide, repression, and deportation. Azerbaijan was prohibited to take any action in respect of economic development,revival and national unity of the country. The leadership of national leader Heydar Aliyev led to the reinforcement of the state, and economic rise of the country in the years of 1969-80. Having obtained 11 Temporary Red Flags in 12 years Azerbaijan has found its place among the Socialist countries. In the unity called Socialism, our people began to form as a nation. The economic revival of Azerbaijan, known as the agricultural country, the high development achievements from the agrarian to the industrial country were the result of tireless efforts of the great leader Heydar Aliyev. The construction of factories and plants enabled the development of our cities and regions. At the same time, staff training programmes relating different fields have been organized as well as educational institutions have been established. Heydar Aliyev laid the foundations of today's independent Azerbaijan. In the early 1990s, the socio-political environment in Azerbaijan aggravated. Our country was on the verge of civil war, collapse, fragmentation and loss of independence. After Heydar Aliyev came to political power for the second time at the request of people, in a short period of time chaos and the civil war in the country were prevented. Nationwide leader Heydar Aliyev has secured himself an everlasting place in the blood memory of Azeri people. The Contract of the Century, signed on September 20, 1994, created favorable conditions for Azerbaijan to join the world economic system as a state and strengthen its position in the international arena. One of the great services of genius personality Heydar Aliyev to the Azerbaijani people is that he entrusts Azerbaijan to the worthy political ruler that can manage the state of Azerbaijan after him. Modern Azerbaijan, which is the masterpiece of national leader Heydar Aliyev, currently has a decent place among the dynamically developing countries of the world under the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev. As a result of the successful policy of the state leader, our country took the leading position among the world countries for the rate of economic growth and has become a leader in the region. We hope and believe that our lands will be liberated from occupation. Heydar Aliyev Park and the magnificent monument of our great leader will be erected in Khojaly. İn the land of ancient historical monuments, we will meet Mr. President with flowers and love. Studying and promoting traditions of statehood, Heydar Aliyev's heritage covering all areas of society is our sacred duty. Khojaly people have the unique path – the successful path paved by National Leader Heydar Aliyev.This is what happened yesterday, it is the same today, and so will it be in the future.
