Some time ago, during her visit to London together with the Esteemed President of Azerbaijan, Mr. llham Aliyev; some western press organs have compared her with the First Ladies of France and the United Kingdom, and they have reached the opinion that Mehriban Aliyeva is more outstanding than these First Ladies. This is because; Mehriban Aliyeva is very well known and recognized before the world public opinion not only as a beautiful and an epicure First Lady but also by her comprehensive humanistic studies which she carries out without a break. Moreover, Mehriban Aliyeva is also a mother who has raised three excellent children. We greatly witnessed the fact that she has created very good impressions in favor of Azerbaijan during the visits to foreign countries. We always heard positive words about the First Lady of Azerbaijan from the worldwide famous politicians who have made conversations with her and persons, who have negotiated with her and perform activities in social and cultural fields. We witnessed that almost all completed their statements with these expressions: "Azerbaijan is a very lucky country!" This is an undeniable reality.
