Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev visited the memorial in honor of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic in the Istiglaliyyat Street in Baku on May 26.

The guard of honor was arranged around the memorial, Azertac reported.

The head of state laid a wreath at the memorial. The national anthem of Azerbaijan was played.

May 28, 1918, marks the establishment of the ADR, the first independent republic and democratic state on the East. Although it existed for only 23 months, it brought about great progress in foreign policy, and introduced Azerbaijan to the international community.

To appreciate the historical significance of this event not only for Azerbaijan, but also for the entire Islamic world, it is enough to recall that at that time there were only seven independent Muslim states in the world - Turkey, Persia, Afghanistan, Emirate of Bukhara, and three small monarchies of Inner Arabia.
