I remember a very important and exciting meeting that took place during one of my visits to the capital of Azerbaijan. At that meeting, I unexpectedly had the honor to personally meet President Heydar Aliyev and was fascinated by the extraordinary charisma of his personality. I am used to meeting outstanding personalities, but in President Heydar Aliyev I saw humanism, altruism and foresight that I did not see in anyone.

It is no secret that President Heydar Aliyev is a great leader who will be remebered forever. He will be remembered not only for his great services to his people, but also for his generosity and wisdom. I am sure that history will speak of him with great respect and gratitude. All those who had the honor of knowing Heydar Aliyev as President and prominent figure experience the same feelings.

I am sure that President Heydar Aliyev is still helping his people and those who are trying to perpetuate his hard work and principles.
