President Ilham Aliyev: No country can change our will


May 27, Fineko/ "We’ve done a lot of work to strengthen our independence. We’ve achieved complete independence in political terms. No country can influence our will, and everyone already knows that Azerbaijan must be reckoned with, Azerbaijan's position must be taken into account. Azerbaijan is a self-respecting state and demands the same respect from everyone."

Such thoughts were voiced by President Ilham Aliyev, speaking on 27 May at a meeting with members of the public in Agali village of Zangilan district.

"There are not so many economically independent countries today. Recent history has shown this. But we are completely independent, we build our own lives and do not need any help or credit. On the contrary, we give loans to some countries ourselves. It is as a result of economic independence that today I can say that Agali village has become one of the most progressive in the world. We did it on our own, and we are carrying out restoration work on all other liberated lands. Huge projects are being implemented now. The Azerbaijani people are regularly informed about this," the President stressed.
