PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF AZERBAIJANHIS EXCELLENCY,MR. ILHAM ALIYEV
The outstanding state and political figure who had done much for Azerbaijani and other peoples of the Soviet Union passed away.
Heydar Aliyev will remain in the history as a talented and courageous leader, defender of strengthening of friendship of the Caucasian peoples with Russia.
Being in the office of President of Azerbaijan Republic, he tried to settle the Trans-Caucasian conflicts through negotiations and compromises.
It is my conviction that under your guidance people of Azerbaijan will henceforth follow the way set by Heydar Aliyev.
With all my heart, I wish you to withstand with fortitude the sorrow - loss of your native father.
Accept my sincere condolences.
President of All-Russian Public Organization “Union of Russian Armenians”
