Ali Ahmadov: Azerbaijan’s independence was initially based on not-so-right postulate
"The history of independent Azerbaijan can be divided into the period from 1991 to Heydar Aliyev’s return to power, the period of protection of the independence and the period of state development under the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev. The most significant event in 1991 was the adoption of the 18 October Independence Act. But the ensuing events, anarchy created a serious threat to our independence. On the other hand, our independence was based on not-so-right postulate. The slogan was "It’s better to be hungry but independent. The people desires independence for their well-being. People need to see the benefits of independence, or independence would be turned into a hazy dream that is unattainable. During the reign of Heydar Aliyev, the people realized that independence is a reality that serves the people. Heydar Aliyev stabilized the situation, restored peace, put a stop to the Armenian aggression, and carried out economic reforms. During the rein of Ilham Aliyev, Azerbaijan’s independence became stronger, all spheres began to develop,” he said.
