First, the head of Aghdam Region Executive Power Vagif Hasanov spoke about the exceptional services of the Great Leader Heydar Aliyev for the people of Azerbaijan, and said that important economic and moral potential was created for our today`s independence in the period when he first came to power. It was noted that during the period when Heydar Aliyev was dismissed from political power and persecuted, the Armenian separatism started in Karabakh and Armenia committed aggression by initiating territorial claims. The rescue of our independent statehood and escape of our people from the calamity faced were possible by his return to political power in Azerbaijan.
It was noted that foundation of the systematic state policy in the field of work with refugees and IDPs who had to leave their homes as a result of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was also laid by the Great Leader Heydar Aliyev, and this policy is further enriched and successfully pursued by the President Mr. Ilham Aliyev. Comprehensive consistent measures are being taken to improve the living conditions and increase employment of refugees and IDPs. 104 settlements supplied with all the necessary infrastructure facilities have been built and put into use for people of this category by now.
