Top official: Azerbaijan created a state that plays significant role in region and world

Azerbaijan, Baku, June 3 / Trend E. Mehdiyev /

Azerbaijan has managed to create a country, which plays a significant role in the region and the world, a country whose interests are taken into consideration, Head of the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration's Social and Political Department Ali Hasanov said at the reporting conference of the Azerbaijan Student Youth Organizations' Union on June 3.

Hasanov noted that the government which conducts independent policy either has people agreeing with it, or going up against it, while lacking sufficient strength.

"Today Azerbaijan's opinion is necessarily taken into consideration while developing the trans-energy projects of the Caspian basin, establishing and developing the East-West trans-national transport and communication links and other issues," he said.

"Azerbaijan is really capable of representing the interests of the country and people on the world stage. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev is the representative of the top interests of this country," Hasanov noted.

"While taking an oath, President Aliyev swore that he will fully protect Azerbaijan's interests and security," he said. "The president is faithful to his oath. Certain foreign countries and international forces do not like this."

Hasanov went on to say that some may not like this, as there are Azerbaijan's interests on one side, and interests of other foreign countries on the other.

"In this regard, these forces are seeking to create certain blocs against Azerbaijan," he said.

Hasanov noted that the Azerbaijani opposition has been far from the national interests for 20 years already.

"It is ready to enter an alliance with any bloc, just to satisfy its thirst for power. It supports the pressure on Azerbaijan from the outside," he noted.

"Take a look at what a pitiful situation the opposition is in that instead of supporting the state will of Azerbaijani President, it is ready to do everything to come to power. And their readiness for everything is the reason why they are in the opposition for 20 years," Hasanov said.

He noted that today the opposition is looking for support from outside because they did not build their interests on the basis of the interests of the Azerbaijani people.

"As you remember, on June 3, 1993 one of the three top leaders said that we are so firm in power, even if people rise up against us, we will not pass it up," Hasanov noted. "However after a week, Azerbaijani people rose up and expressed its will."

Hasanov underlined that the opposition has yet to learn a lesson that those who do not rely on people's will, is doomed to fail at politics.

"A prime example of how to rely on people is Ilham Aliyev, while the ruling New Azerbaijan Party as an example of the party," he said.

"Today none of these parties is responsible for their words and actions. The only thing is that they want to win the next elections in a populist or any other form. People say that Ilham Aliyev does not conduct a pre-election campaign and will not hold one. Do you know why? Ilham Aliyev thinks about the future of people and the younger generation, the Azerbaijani people, rather the elections."

Hasanov noted that 20 years ago Azerbaijani people rose up and drove away the people in power, which led the statehood towards fall and decay, and brought the National Leader to power.

"Internal crisis, riots, civil opposition that began in Azerbaijan in June 1993 resulted in the invitation of Azerbaijani national leader Heydar Aliyev from Nakhchivan to Baku," he said. "We are familiar with the subsequent processes."

"In fact, the basis of all spheres of the country's life was laid by Heydar Aliyev in 1993. Azerbaijan resisted not only Armenia, but also the large military units left over from the former Soviet military system."

Hasanov said that despite the fact that Azerbaijani citizens were determined to fight against this force, they were disorganized.

"A national army was not formed, there was lack of professionalism, political camps used Azerbaijani youth to gain power," he said.

Hasanov noted that the National Leader's first move was the achievement of the ceasefire regime with Armenia in May 1994.

"As a result, Azerbaijan gained time and opportunity for development. The national leader's next step was the establishment of the Ministry of Youth and Sports. Why? Weren't there more important issues? Yes, there were, however a country that doesn't control youth, cannot have a future. Following this position, the National Leader used this time for developing Azerbaijani youth," Hasanov said.

He noted that the basis of the youth policy, founded during that period and the youth policy conducted in the future, has led to the fact that today's audience includes talented, sensible young people, who have fully become a vanguard of Azerbaijani youth.
