The 25-year period of independence demonstrates that only states built on national roots can achieve success, only those states have a future, said Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev delivering a speech at the nationwide festivities on the occasion of Novruz, the Azerbaijani national holiday.
“We preserve, perpetuate our culture, art, native language, holidays,” said President Aliyev.
“The values of Azerbaijan, our national-spiritual values are above all for us. I am glad that the younger generation is also growing up like that,” he noted.
The younger generation gets education in the spirit of patriotism, national spirit, and today every citizen of Azerbaijan, who loves the Motherland, is proud of it, added the president.
