At the videoconference organized at the “E-Government” Educational and Training Center of the Ministry of Transport, Communications and High Technologies, the Executive Director of the Knowledge Foundation Oktay Samadov spoke about the National Leader Haydar Aliyev’s invaluable services to the country and people. It was marked that the establishment of an independent, democratic, rule-of-law state in Azerbaijan, the preservation of national statehood and sovereignty is connected with the name of the great leader. Haydar Aliyev gave special importance to the development of educational ideas, to increasing the level of national education, the construction of new schools, the strengthening of the material and technical base of educational institutions, the education of young people in prestigious universities of the country and abroad.

The deputy of the Milli Majlis, the editor-in-chief of the newspaper “Yeni Azərbaycan” Hikmet Babaogly made a speech before the audience. He noted that in the early 1990s, one of the problems related to Azerbaijan’s further destiny was the spiritual crisis in society in connection with the breakdown of the ideological and political systems that had become obsolete. Immediately after gaining independence, a hopeless vacuum arose in the sphere, and then the situation radically changed. The deputy noted that after the collapse of the old socio-political system, its ideological and moral supports collapsed. Public consciousness, formed for years by this political system was forced to seek a new ideological support. This period was characterized both by the adoption of a new model of society and by the search for new forms of national ideology: “It was against such a complex situation that the forces represented in the political palette tried to refer to various ideological trends for the satisfaction of their group interests, and tried to present their ideology samples. In this case, instead of convergence of positions in the name of constructiveness and national solidarity, there was an increase in the tendencies of maximalism and the formula of denying each other turned into an axiom.” The deputy noted that the ideology, capable of creating a civic solidarity, sounded only in 1993.  These were the provisions put forward by the political party “Yeni Azərbaycan” and its leader Haydar Aliyev : “The ideology of Azerbaijanis, sponsored by the nationwide leader of the Azerbaijani people, Haydar Aliyev, reflecting the principles of universal and national values, has become a national spiritual mechanism that provides national solidarity. This ideology ensured on a parity basis the rights of all ethnic groups and national minorities, regardless of their political and religious affiliation, and became a source of national solidarity. Today, the Azerbaijani state, representing the world its model of tolerance, contributing to the development of multiculturalism, is considered the highest example of the coexistence of members of society with different religious and ethnic backgrounds. The announcement of 2016 by President Ilham Aliyev “The Year of Multiculturalism” played a significant role in popularizing this model throughout the world.”

Representatives of local youth and intellectuals from Sumgayit, Ganja, Barda, Mingechaur, Lankaran, Sheki and Gazakh took part in the videoconference. At the event, Hikmet Babaoglu answered numerous questions from the audience from different regions of the country.
