"Today Azerbaijan is a strong and powerful independent state. We have an independent policy. Azerbaijan today is a state that speaks its weighty word, defends its position", - First Vice-President of Azerbaijan Mehriban Aliyeva stated this during her speech at the ceremony of providing apartments to IDPs in the village of Masazir, Absheron region, APA reports.
Mehriban Aliyeva noted that today Azerbaijan is moving along the path of development and progress: "Our independent policy will be continued. We see our achievements, we realize our power. We also need to understand that if our friends, our partners are happy with our successes, our enemy is not at all happy and resorts to all kinds of dirty deeds. However, we are not afraid of this. We go our own way. Once again I want to note that for Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev the interests of Azerbaijan and the Azerbaijani people are above all, and we will not turn from this path."
"At the same time, we are well aware of the existing problems, unresolved issues and, in order to eliminate them, we are working and will work in full force. I am sure that we will achieve all our desires. Since for this there are all factors - independent policy, good intentions, economic potential and, most importantly, people's faith and support. Once again I say that with your support and with the help of Allah we will realize all our desires", - the first vice-president of Azerbaijan Mehriban Aliyeva noted.
