Today, the Republic of Azerbaijan celebrates its Independence Day. In this regard, on behalf of the staff of the International Turkic Academy and my own behalf, I sincerely congratulate the brotherly people of Azerbaijan!
The establishing of the Republic of Azerbaijan, which declared its independence 29 years ago as the successor of the Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan, was a significant historical event.
During this time, Azerbaijan has made great strides in the political, economic and social spheres, paving the way for stability and development in the region.
It should be noted that the Republic of Azerbaijan is a brotherly country that makes a significant contribution to the development of Turkic cooperation. Eleven years ago, at a historic summit in Nakhchivan, Azerbaijan, with the participation of Turkic-speaking countries, it was decided to establish the Turkic Council, the Turkic Academy, Turkic Culture and Heritage Foundation, and the Council of Elders.
I wish the Republic of Azerbaijan sustainable development, new victories, peace and prosperity in these historic days! Happy Independence Day!
President of the International Turkic Academy
