This event was of enormous historical significance. Establishment of the democratic republic for the first time in the region was a great achievement of Azerbaijani people,” said Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev while delivering a speech at the ceremony marking May 28th - Republic Day at the Buta Palace, APA reports quoting AzerTAC.
“The republic did not exist for a long time. Azerbaijan Democratic Republic fell two years later and Azerbaijani people lost their independence. In a short period of time, within two years all the attributes of the state were established, Azerbaijan’s state flag was approved, our outstanding composer Uzeyir bey Hajibeyli composed the national hymn, Azerbaijan’s state emblem was approved, state structures were formed, the ministries were established. The Democratic Republic’s fall was inevitable and during 70 years Azerbaijan existed as a socialist republic within the Soviet Union. Though we were deprived of our state independence, those years were also successful for Azerbaijan. Very strong industrial potential was formed in Azerbaijan. Agriculture was developing rapidly in Azerbaijan. The industrial establishments, particularly the establishments in the field of oil and gas are still serving the independent Azerbaijan,” he said.
