"Heydar Aliyev is the creator of Azerbaijan's independence, the architect of modern Azerbaijan, the author of a stable and sustainable economy," Ambassador of Türkiye to Azerbaijan Cahit Bagchi said, APA reports.
He said that Heydar Aliyev is also an exemplary leader with the concept of Turkism and foresight: "Today we visited the grave of National Leader Heydar Aliyev on the occasion of 100th anniversary and prayed for his soul. Undoubtedly, Heydar Aliyev is known as the author of the ideals that makes Azerbaijan a strong state. His 30-year struggle is witnessed not only by Azerbaijan but also by the Turkish people. The concept of one nation and two states of the great leader has been strengthened even more today. According to the words of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, the concept of one nation, two states has become the concept of one nation, one fist. This is the heritage left to us by Heydar Aliyev and which we are strengthening. Undoubtedly, Heydar Aliyev's concept of a single nation proved itself even more with the Shusha Declaration after the Karabakh Victory. Once again, we honor the National Leader on the occasion of his 100th anniversary."
