Official reception hosted on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of ADR

On May 28, the official reception was hosted at the Heydar Aliyev Center on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic.

“The establishment of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic is a historic milestone. The first ever democratic republic was established in the Muslim world. This once again shows that the Azerbaijan people are a great, freedom-loving and progressive nation. The ADR existed for 23 months. But during this period of time it managed to do a lot. The state flag of Azerbaijan was established, the citizenship of Azerbaijan was established, and our national army was established. Next month we will mark the 100th anniversary of our army. In September 1918, the national army of Azerbaijan together with the Caucasian Islamic Army liberated Baku from the Armenian-Bolshevik troops and the occupation, and returned our ancient historical city of Baku to the Azerbaijan people. The Democratic Republic established border troops. Ganja regained its historical name. In a short time, more than 200 laws were passed. A special place among them, of course, is the law envisaging the right to vote for women. The Baku State University was established, and this shows that the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic intended to do a great deal of work on training of specialists and development of education. The native language was adopted in all educational institutions, the Azerbaijan language”, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at the official reception on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the ADR, Caspian Energy News (www.caspianenergy.net) reports with reference to the press service of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
