Zakir Farajov also noted that the great leader Heydar Aliyev rendered unique historical services to the independent state and people of Azerbaijan. Heydar Aliyev was truly a personality whose greatness was acknowledged and accepted on a world scale. In the 90s of the 20th century, when Azerbaijan entered the international arena as an independent state, our country was known and accepted because of Heydar Aliyev. Many envied us that we have a leader like Heydar Aliyev. Azerbaijan has been able to rise to the level it deserves on a world scale thanks to the Great Leader"s foresight, wisdom, determination, iron will, and rich statecraft experience. The name of Heydar Aliyev, the architect and founder of modern Azerbaijan, will be as eternal as Azerbaijan itself. Heydar Aliyev"s honorable service to the people and statehood of Azerbaijan throughout his life is also confirmed by the fact that this genius in his address to the people in connection with the Presidential elections in Azerbaijan in 2003 clearly indicated the address that could successfully continue the great political course he had formed for many years. Time has proven that under the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev, whom the Great leader trusts in the fate of the people and the state, in whom he believes as much as himself. The Republic of Azerbaijan develops day by day in accordance with the ideas of Heydar Aliyev, strengthens its reputation in the international world, and "Karabakh is Azerbaijan!" fulfilling the greatest will of his father with his exclamation .Supreme Commander-in-Chief demonstrated to the world his greatness by pinning the Azerbaijan Flag on the Shusha Castle and the bridge of Khudafarin.
Mr. Zakir Farajov also emphasized that the end of the Second Karabakh war with victory was also a solemnity of the judgment of the time. Our National Army led by the victorious Commander-in-Chief Ilham Aliyev, who successfully ended the 44-day long Patriotic War, liberated our lands occupied for 30 years by Armenia. Currently, the restoration and construction works carried out in our territories destroyed by Armenian vandals are continuing. The fact that people are settling in their native lands in Agalı shows that the time of the Great Return is approaching. Today, there is no need to prove that Zangezur is the historical land of Azerbaijan. The documents maintained in the archives of different countries are already mentioned the truth. Alarmed by the return of the original owners of these lands, Armenians are trying to prevent this migration by all means. All this is the clarification of the historical facts told by the great leader Heydar Aliyev, who repeatedly revealed the truth about Zangezur. The 19th and 20th centuries a very important period for Azerbaijan Great Leader always noted but at the same time full of tense events and on the policy of armenianization of Azerbaijani lands and importance of passing the truth to the future generations. Ilham Aliyev proves once again that the Zangezur corridor will be opened whether Armenia wants it or not. Our historical lands will be freed from occupation. We will return to Zangezur, Goyce and Yerevan in the near future.
