"Today, under the pretext of globalization, we see manifestations of big politics – some external circles poison the minds of young people, lead them astray. People come across false information, slander and messages of a provocative nature", President of the Republic of Azerbaijan said in his message on the start of a new school year and Knowledge Day, APA reports citing Presidential Press Service.
"Sometimes young people cannot understand which information is true and which is false. Therefore, a lot depends on the teachers. We should protect our children and teenagers from the “values” that run counter to national customs and traditions. Our children should be attached to the Motherland and nation, value independence most of all, be brought up in the national spirit, in the spirit of patriotism, defend and preserve the national customs and traditions we have preserved for centuries. If this is the case, Azerbaijan will continue to follow the path of independence and development", noted Head of state in his message.
