Ernst Mühlemann

Former Deputy Chair of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe

Heydar Aliyev is a pillar of stability in the Caucasus region. The Balkans was known as a “powder keg” of Europe, unfortunately, this keg has already exploded.

The Caucasus is also a “powder keg”, but this barrel did not explode. Maybe because this region has influential political figures, such as Heydar Aliyev. It is a great achievement that Heydar Aliyev governs his country on the basis of rule of law. Undoubtedly, this milestone was not achieved in one day or in one year.

The activity of President Heydar Aliyev has benefited his country and is a very important factor for the world community. Heydar Aliyev is a very strong president, he set a great example for the Council of Europe.

We are fascinated by Heydar Aliyev because he managed to take a balanced path between US and Russia.
