25th anniversary of restoration of Azerbaijan`s independence marked in Argentina (November 1, 2016)
Azerbaijan`s Embassy to Argentina has organized an event to celebrate the 25th anniversary of restoration of Azerbaijan`s state independence.
Members of the Argentine National Congress, high ranking officials, representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship, foreign diplomatic corps, scientists, businessmen and journalists participated in the event.
Azerbaijani ambassador Rashad Aslanov provided an insight into the history of the country`s independence. He said the first years of independence marked deep political, economic and social crisis as well as Armenia`s military aggression against Azerbaijan.
Aslanov said stability was restored in Azerbaijan only when national leader Heydar Aliyev returned to power in 1993.
He highlighted the internal and foreign policy of President Ilham Aliyev, the country`s achievements in the oil and gas industry, international transportation projects, traditions of multiculturalism in Azerbaijan, as well as relations between the two countries.
The event featured the screening of a promotional video on Azerbaijan, and the guests also tasted Azerbaijani national dishes and sweets.
