BAKU, Azerbaijan, February 2
We have created a country that every citizen can be proud of, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said while answering questions of young people at a Youth Forum dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Day of Azerbaijani Youth, Trend reports.
"As a country that celebrated the 30th anniversary of our independence last year, we can say today that we have created a country that every citizen can be proud of. If we look at any field, we can see that we have really made historic achievements. Of course, there are problems and shortcomings. We are struggling with these shortcomings and will continue to do so. But if we analyze this period in general, we will see that we have made historic achievements. As I said, the majority of those who put their chests forward in the war are young people. Of course, the Patriotic war is called patriotic because the whole nation was trying to win this war. In my previous speeches, I have repeatedly said that each of us must bring this sacred day of victory closer every day. The purpose of my work in all areas was to resolve the Karabakh issue: whether this or that step will bring us closer to Victory. The older generation, experienced people, commanders, young people – all our people united as one organism, as one fist, and restored historical justice," the head of state said.
