"Following the Patriotic War, which concluded with triumph due to the political steadfastness and determination of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Victorious Supreme Commander-in-Chief Ilham Aliyev, new political realities have emerged in our country and at the same time in our region. The realities upon which Azerbaijan's leadership stands in the foreground are conditioned by important factors such as the realization of our people's historical aspirations, and the restoration of our sovereignty and territorial integrity", said Ahmad Ismayilov, the Executive Director of Azerbaijan’s Media Development Agency in a meeting dedicated to the equal pre-election campaigning opportunities and activities of the media subjects during presidential elections, APA reports.
Mr Ahmadov emphasized that by encompassing all areas of societal life, the new stage ensures the continuity of profound reforms in Azerbaijan, aligns with the dynamic development of modern era and thus guarantees the perpetual progress of the country:"Apart from being a place of pride for our compatriots, victorious Azerbaijan is also ruining the plans of the forces that don't want our country to take its leading position and its rightful place on the international level. Evaluating the development of the independent media which serves our national interests as one of the state's main priorities, the President has always valued journalists' work greatly and has specially mentioned the media's role in conveying Azerbaijan's realities to local and international audiences. Responsibilities assigned to journalists by the President in his appeal to the international media forum held for the first time in Shusha on National Press Day in 2022, remain pertinence".
