With roots in Asia, steams and branches in Europe, Azerbaijan Republic is considered
to be the largest state in South Caucasus for its population, territory, political and geographical position and economic power and already has taken a worthy place in the world community. It didn’t achieve it with any assistance, as to a vassal of a powerful country, but only due to its strength and internal resources. The world’s first oil well was drilled here; Azerbaijan is mining rich oil and gas deposits with world companies, and established trade and economic relations with the European powers which are strongly in need of energy resources of Azerbaijan. Today, alongside with being an energy center in the region, Baku has become a megalopolis with more than 60 diplomatic representations, hundreds of world companies and famous brands working here, large-scaled international conferences, cultural and sport competitions. Opening its embassies in more than 60 countries around the world, Azerbaijan broadens its diplomatic network. Commercial and economic relations, scientific and cultural cooperation of the country with world countries are intensively developed. Year by year increases in the number of tourists, participants of international events which are held in this country known as “Land of fire”. However, monitoring efforts shows that foreigners feel lack of information about Azerbaijan. As it is written in “The Bible” and “Quran”, azers existed from the prophet Abraham's father Azar’s times, and lived from the origin in the territory from the city of Derbend, a part of current Russia, to the north of Iran and eastern Turkey, emigrated in the different countries of the world, 20 percent of the 50 million’s nation live in Azerbaijan Republic and it is considered as the world Azeri’s country. Two hundred years ago Azerbaijan was divided between Iran and Russia. Though the first democratic republic of the East (Azerbaijan Republic (1918-1920)) was captured by Bolshevik Russia, it couldn’t break peoples’ will of freedom. For the 70 years of the soviet regime, thousands of intelligentsia, citizens were shot without any trial, were killed by sending in cold taigas of Siberia and arid deserts of Kazakhstan. Once the tree is cut down, in his place new shoots sprout ... Place forefathers for his sons and grandsons. In 1989-1990, the Azerbaijan Republic was the first to raise its head in the people’s prison called USSR. January 20, 1990 soviet punitive troops chastised the civil population who demanded their independence according to the Constitution. Once again they were murdered, wounded, missed hundreds of civilians of Azerbaijan. Finally, in 1991 Azerbaijan gained its independence and restored state, its flag, coat of arms and anthem, which were lost 70 years ago. Nowadays, Azerbaijan is an independent state which has no foreign armed contingent or base, with its independent policy ruled by will of people, and is owner of its natural resources.
