The hearty words of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Heydar Aliyev after visiting the grave of the unknown soldier in Arlington Honorable Cemetery and presenting a memorable present - an Azerbaijani dagger to the Cemetery museum - Washington, Arlington Cemetery - July 31,1997

This is an Azerbaijani dagger. Azerbaijani soldiers used this dagger in the past and it is a historical weapon.

This is also an art work of our people. I present this dagger to the museum of the National Arlington Cemetery.

I am pleased with the visit of the National Arlington Cemetery and want to thank to the head of the complex for their attention.
