BAKU, Azerbaijan, March 3
I personally monitor the protection of the historical image of Icharishahar, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said receiving in a video format Shahın Seyidzade due to his appointment as Chairman of the Board of Icharishahar State Historical and Architectural Reserve, Trend reports.
"We all know that it was in Icharishahar that the foundation of Baku was laid. In ancient times, there were no buildings outside the walls of the fortress. People still live in Icharishahar today and, of course, great work is being done and will continue to be done for their comfort. At the same time, I want to say again that Icharishahar is a very attractive place for the residents of Baku, all Azerbaijani citizens and foreign visitors, which is why there is a huge influx of people to Icharishahar every day. Taking all this into account, work should be organized in such a way that the people living there do not suffer. At the same time, necessary conditions should be created for tourists and visitors. A great deal of work has been done in this direction in recent years. I personally monitor the protection of the historical image of Icharishahar, and I am confident that under your leadership, the Department will successfully fulfill the new tasks ahead. Icharishahar should and will live forever. Both we and our future generations will be rightfully proud of Icharishahar," the head of state said.
