The life of Heydar Alirza oglu is full of continuous victories and accomplishments. Possessing extraordinary abilities and innate wisdom, he devoted his entire life to the service of the Motherland.

Fate repeatedly gave me the opportunity to personally communicate with President Heydar Aliyev. Bright memories of these meetings, of Heydar Alirza oglu Aliyev, a wise politician, a talented leader, and a wonderful person, will forever remain in my heart.

Heydar Aliyev defends the position of his country on every issue, what opinion Azerbaijan expresses, and what it proposes.
