President: The development of sports and sporting achievements also strengthen the sense of patriotism in society

Baku, April 8, AZERTAC

“The development of sports and sporting achievements not only promote our country in the world and show our strength, but also strengthen the sense of patriotism in society. It was patriotism, devotion to the Motherland and incredible self-sacrifice that led us forward in the war for the liberation of Karabakh,” said President Ilham Aliyev as he received members of the Azerbaijani national team participating in the European Wrestling Championships which was held in Hungary.

“The young generation must be definitely raised in the spirit of patriotism, in the national spirit, on the basis of national values, and the Azerbaijani state takes advantage of every opportunity to achieve this. One of the factors that further strengthens patriotism is, of course, our historic military victory, as well as our sporting success,” the head of state emphasized.

“Young people represent the Motherland with dignity. Every citizen of Azerbaijan contributes to the strengthening of our country through his work. That is why Azerbaijan is recognized as a rapidly developing country in the world and one of a handful of countries that is in charge of its own destiny, pursues its own policy, and gets the upper hand both on the battlefield and in the political arena,” President Ilham Aliyev noted.
