Our national leader Heydar Aliyev said: “We are an independent state. An independent state must have its own power. The basis of this power is the people and the army that is part of it.” That army is strong and has patriotic and professional personnel. Today, consistent measures are being taken in our country, as well as in the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic in the field of army building. The Azerbaijani Army has the most modern weapons and equipment, high combat capability and patriotic personnel. As a result, our army won a historic victory in the Patriotic War, which began in order to prevent enemy provocations. In this war, our brave sons from Nakhchivan rose to the peak of martyrdom, showing a true example of patriotism.
