Triumphant Supreme Commander-in-Chief!
On behalf of the General Meeting of the Department of Biological and Medical Sciences of ANAS, I express my deep gratitude to you on the occasion of the historic victory in the Second Karabakh War. Under your command, with this victory, our army brought joy to the people of Azerbaijan, which it has longed for many years, and touched the hearts of the mothers of martyrs. You have raised the national pride, self-awareness and self-confidence of our people to an unprecedented level. By solving the problem that the whole world could not solve for 30 years in a month and a half, you have rewritten the history of victory of modern Azerbaijan in golden letters.
As a great head of state and a triumphant commander, you have created a new military-political atmosphere in the region with your great victories in the fields of politics, information and diplomacy, and have gained great prestige for our people.
Today, the members of our Department and the staff of the institutes are tuned to the period of great return and peaceful construction. We will do our best to meet the challenges of revitalization and development plans widely discussed in society, to explore, protect and effectively use the nature, landscape, flora and fauna, underground and surface resources of Karabakh, to restore and improve our degraded lands.
May the Almighty God protect you and your family, our people and the Karabakh you have returned!
With deep respect and esteem,
Vice-president of ANAS, academician Irada Huseynova
