The socio-economic and political development that took place in the country after the return of national leader Heydar Aliyev to power has played a decisive role in strengthening our state, joining the process of close integration into the civilized world and building a modern society that meets the strategic interests of our people. Thus, this important historical day is engraved in the memory of our people as the Day of National Salvation, and since 1997 it has been celebrated as an official holiday by the decision of the parliament. There is no denying that the restoration and development of our independence has become a reality thanks to the will of the National Leader.
