His Excellency Mr. Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
Dear President Aliyev,
The role of leaders in defining the nature of relationships between nations is enormous.
When Azerbaijan is commemorating the late President Heydar Aliyev’s 100th birthday, it is time to share his legacy and contribution to the Jewish community in Azerbaijan and his steps that paved the way to the relationship between Azerbaijan and Israel.
Today, Your Excellency is following your father’s steps and spiritual testament and symbolically we are celebrating this year the opening of a new Azerbaijani Embassy in Israel.
The memory of late President Heydar Aliyev and the policy of Your Excellency are highly respected in Israel.
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Israel (2006-2009),
Member of Board of Trustees of the Nizami Ganjavi International Center
