BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 27. If we are not strong, we cannot live the way we want, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said during the meeting with the residents of Aghali village after attending the launch of the first phase of the smart village project in Zangilan district on May 27, Trend reports.
"The power factor will continue to dominate the world. The recent history shows this too. Therefore, we must continue to be strong, and we are getting stronger. Today, our economic indicators are very positive. I can say that Azerbaijan is one of the fastest growing countries in the world. We are also increasing our military strength. After the war, new armed forces are being created, new equipment is being purchased, and we will continue to do so. Because if we are not strong, we cannot live the way we want. We want to live freely. We want no-one to interfere in our work from now on. There is no need for that. We have built such a beautiful state that many today are jealous of it. Let no-one come and teach us, try to advise or guide us. There is no need for that," the head of state said.
