It is necessary to plan future of country in such way as to ensure long-term sustainable development - President Aliyev
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Mar. 6
Of course, in 2003 the people voted for the policy of Heydar Aliyev and showed confidence in me. Because I said that if the people trusted me, then I would remain faithful to the policy of the great leader. This was one of the main factors. Life has shown that in the last 17 years we have achieved truly historic successes, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Chairman of the New Azerbaijan Party Ilham Aliyev said making a speech at the 7th Congress of the New Azerbaijan Party (YAP) held in a video format, Trend reports.
“It will take a long time to characterize this period. Everything is obvious. I am sure that our historians, political scientists, and scientists will correctly describe this period in articles, books, textbooks. Because it was a new period for our young country – a period based on the previous period, on a solid basis, but a new period. And this is natural because each period has its own requirements. We cannot live in the 21st century with the demands of the 1990s. Even today, after the war, a new period begins. We must put aside all the gains made in the old days. Yes, it created a foundation for us, a basis, it allowed us to achieve our main goal. But if we always talk about that period and not think about the future, then what will happen? We must think about the future. We must be ahead of our time. I said that our main rival in the restoration of Karabakh is time. It is necessary to plan the future of the country in such a way as to ensure long-term sustainable development, so that independence becomes eternal so that the power of our country grows so that our possibilities of influence increase and the Azerbaijani people always live in the land of their ancestors in the conditions of security,” the head of state said.
