Adoption of the Constitution is not only one of the most significant events in our history, but also one of the great services of great leader Heydar Aliyev to the Azerbaijani statehood. It was noted that the Constitution is an ultimate and progressive document regulating the process of independent state building, guaranteeing democratic development, containing fundamental changes in the political, social, cultural, and economic spheres of society, and playing legal basis for the improvement of legislation.
J.Mammadov also said that the activities implemented by national leader Heydar Aliyev to regulate state-religious relations, achieve stability in this area, maintain the atmosphere of tolerance between the confessions are of great importance in terms of protecting and strengthening our independence. These points are reflected in the Constitution, in the Law on Freedom of Religion and other legal documents.
AIT rector noted that the achievements of Azerbaijan over the past 24 years since the adoption of the Constitution, the socio-economic growth, the progress of the international image of the country, the factor of becoming a leading state of the region and other issues are indication of the rapid development of our republic. The rector stressed that these achievements are rooted from the far-sighted policy pursued by President Ilham Aliyev and First Vice President Mehriban Aliyeva, who are worthy successors of National Leader Heydar Aliyev’s political course.
