Heydar Aliyev is the outstanding, wise statesman. For me, it was a great honor to meet him. The successes achieved under the direction of President Heydar Aliyev, known in the entire Arabian world as an outstanding, wise statesman, with sympathy are met in Lebanon. Due to the wise policy of President Heydar Aliyev, Azerbaijan has taken a worthy place in the world community, contracts with the known companies of many countries of the world about joint development of deposits in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian sea are signed, that strongly guarantees eternity of independence and the sovereignty of Azerbaijan, satisfaction of economic interests of these states in the said region.

The information on famous person Heydar Aliyev is widely distributed not only in Lebanon, but also in all the Arabian world.
