Today is the day of independence of Azerbaijan. As of October 18, 1991, the Parliament adopted the Constitutional Act on State Independence of Azerbaijan. In this document, the Republic of Azerbaijan was declared an heir-at-law of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic which existed during the years of 1918-1920. The Constitutional Act embraced the fundamental principles of political and economic relations, belonging of all natural resources to the people, equality of all forms of ownership, as well as provision of voting rights of citizens, and multiparty system.
We congratulate the whole Azerbaijani people on this occasion, and wish our independence to be everlasting.
LONG LIVE THE INDEPENDENT REPUBLIC OF AZERBAIJAN!
