The head of the project underlined that our people have protected the Azerbaijani language from foreign influences for thousands of years and have risen this language to the line of the richest languages of the world. He said: "During the Soviet period, national leader Heydar Aliyev, who tirelessly and resolutely struggled with the leadership of the alliance trying to move our language into the background, always paid special attention to the development of our language and has made important historical decisions against the wishes of the regime. Two decree on the development of the Azerbaijani language were signed in the first ten years of President Ilham Aliyev's leadership in the country and the State Program in April 2013, who is a worthy successor of the Great Leader's political course that it also a proof of how much our state pays attention to this area”.
Tahmasib Novruzov noted that regular violation of the mother tongue norms on TV and radio programs, media, advertising market, trade and catering facilities is perceived by the citizens as an ordinary case. Our citizens, especially our intellectuals and young people, have to take an active role in the implementation of state programs.
