Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 24


Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, over the past 15 years, has proved himself as the builder of new Azerbaijan over the past 15 years, Trend reports referring to Azerbaijani President’s Assistant for Public and Political Affairs Ali Hasanov.

Hasanov made the remarks during the event in Baku on Dec. 24 dedicated to the presentation of a documentary and book entitled “Ilham Aliyev: Annals of 15-year successful presidency. 2003-2018”.

Hasanov stressed that if national leader Heydar Aliyev was the savior of Azerbaijan, his follower Ilham Aliyev over the past 15 years has been developing this country, has demonstrated a new management model and has proved himself as the builder of new Azerbaijan.

"Ilham Aliyev, within his 15 years of presidency, has demonstrated that he has global and systematic strategic thinking,” Hasanov said. “Both the work he carries out in the country and the current foreign policy, the cooperation platforms being carried out upon his initiative, international and regional projects which are being implemented will bring benefit to Azerbaijan and its citizens and serve to strengthen the country for many decades, centuries.”

“Thanks to these initiatives, Azerbaijan, which has no direct access to the open sea, has received the status of a transport and logistics center of the region, through the territory of which the East-West and North-South international transport corridors are stretching,” Hasanov added. “As the president stressed, this allowed Azerbaijan to lead in competition for international transportation, as well as make important contribution to the development of the non-oil sector.”

“Thanks to the large-scale energy projects being implemented upon the Azerbaijani president’s initiative, the country plays an important role in ensuring the energy security of the West,” he said. “Today Azerbaijan is the only alternative source in providing Europe with energy and today some countries are provided with energy by 30-40 percent through Azerbaijan.”

Hasanov stressed that the stability ensured in Azerbaijan under the leadership of President Aliyev makes the country an attractive source of export, which does not promise geopolitical problems, as well as an energy and transport hub.

"Thus, Azerbaijan redesigns the energy and transport map of the continent,” Hasanov added. “The projects created and implemented by Ilham Aliyev, namely, transnational oil and gas pipelines, intercontinental transport corridors, communication lines, ports, shipyards, airports, numerous cultural and medical facilities which were commissioned, national programs being implemented in the field of science, education, will ensure Azerbaijan’s well-being, sustainable development of our country."

He said that over the past 15 years, President Aliyev paid attention to the development of the country's regions, education of young people, public investments in human capital, social rights and social protection of citizens.

“President Aliyev paid special attention to the conceptual policy on protection of health care of citizens, national and spiritual values and upbringing of a new generation in the spirit of loyalty to the historical heritage,” he said.

Hasanov also said that Azerbaijan has established mutually beneficial relations with all neighboring countries except for Armenia.

"Ilham Aliyev is a very pragmatic political leader and a realist,” Hasanov added. “He evaluates the results of his policy in advance. Azerbaijan is pursuing a predictable policy which is managed upon the programs. Ilham Aliyev fulfills the goals which he has set and promises he has made.”

Hasanov also said that the purposeful policy being pursued by the president is designed to improve the welfare of the population.

"This policy is supported by people,” he said. “The monitoring being conducted by local and foreign structures and surveys which are being carried out testify to this support. The results of the presidential election this year showed people’s great confidence in Ilham Aliyev’s policy.”

“According to the survey conducted at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Azerbaijan ranks 20th in the world in the "society’s confidence in politicians" category,” he said. “This should be regarded as international recognition of people’s great confidence personally in Ilham Aliyev and in power."

Hasanov also said that President Aliyev is a very determined leader who has strong political will.

"Ilham Aliyev shows great determination, a titanic will to implement policy, projects, programs planned for Azerbaijan and he is able to implement what sometimes seems impossible,” he said. “The presented book and film have also showed how resolutely the president protects the interests of the Azerbaijanis on international arena. The strategic policy, being conducted under the leadership of Ilham Aliyev, is aimed at constant improvement of Azerbaijan’s authority and role in the international arena."

Hasanov added that Ilham Aliyev’s great political culture is also observed in relation to the neighbors.

"Despite some incitement and pressure, Azerbaijan has not played the role of a springboard against any country,” he said. “Even during the recent change of power in Armenia and the inactivity of the state administration, Azerbaijan did not use this in its interests.”

“As a result, today Azerbaijan is recognized as a platform for cooperation and dialogue, it is contributing to an increase in international confidence,” he said. “It is not a coincidence that the holding of meetings of military leaders of US and Russia, NATO and Russia has become a tradition since 2017. Various Russian and Turkish politicians stress Azerbaijan’s support rendered to reduce tension between the two countries.”
