Event Dedicated to Heydar Aliyev, Late President of Azerbaijan, Held at ASU

A roundtable for young people representing the Azerbaijani diaspora in Russia has been held at Astrakhan State University. Adalyat Guseynov, Chairperson of the Astrakhan Office of the Azerbaijani Congress in Russia, has been its distinguished guest.

The event was dedicated to Heydar Aliyev, an outstanding politician and national president. On May 10, he could have celebrated his 95th birthday. As this date is coming nearer, the roundtable participants remembered his life and political activities.

Adalyat Guseynov remarked that it was very pleasant for him to come to ASU to participate in this event: “This is the best and the dearest university for me. Many thanks to the event organizers”. The guest told about his work under Heydar Aliyev’s supervision. He confessed that he regards himself as a disciple of the great politician. By the way, it is Adalyat Guseynov who heads Heydar Aliyev’s Fund in Astrakhan. The fund has realized a number of large projects in Astrakhan, including opening of a monument in honor of Heydar Aliyev in the city park that bears his name.
