"I have always had great respect for Zeynalabdin Taghiyev's personality," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev at the inauguration of a statue to philanthropist Haji Zeynalabdin Taghiyev in Baku, APA reports.

"Back in the early 2000s, when I was not President yet, the Pirhasan shrine where his tomb is located was renovated on my initiative, and the area around the tomb took on a new look. Immediately after becoming President, his house, the building of the Museum of History, was renovated on my initiative, and the part of the house where he lived remained a museum, while the Museum of History displays exhibits from different periods of our history.

Today, I am very glad that the statue of Zeynalabdin Taghiyev has been erected in Baku. He deserves it. The Azerbaijani people keep in their hearts every person who has served the Azerbaijani people, our history and nation.

I once again sincerely congratulate my dear people on this occasion and wish the people of Azerbaijan continued success and new victories. Thank you," noted the head of state.
