Heydar Aliyev’s endless love for popular wisdom emerged from his love for the native land, Azerbaijan. Heydar Aliyev was thinking of the integration of Azerbaijan into the civilized community and economic, political and humanitarian rapprochement between nations as one of key means of consolidation of the statehood and people development.
