Rafic Hariri

Former Prime Minister of the Republic of Lebanon

Heydar Aliyev is an outstanding and wise statesman, meeting with Heydar Aliyev is a great honor for me. Lebanon welcomes the achievements made under the leadership of President Heydar Aliyev, known throughout the Arab world as an outstanding and astute statesman. As a result of the visionary policy of President Heydar Aliyev Azerbaijan occupies a worthy place in the world community, and the signing of agreements with some major worldwide influential companies on the joint operation of fields in the Azerbaijani sector of the Caspian Sea provides a great guarantee for the eternal independence of Azerbaijan and the realization of the economic interests of the states in this region. Knowledge about the distinguished personality of Heydar Aliyev is widely disseminated not only in Lebanon but throughout the Arab world.

I express my deep respect and admiration for your visionary policy in resolving the crucial issues of your country.
