"This year, large-scale events are not possible because of the coronavirus. I am sure that the Azerbaijani people understand this situation well," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev in his congratulation to the people of Azerbaijan on the occasion of Novruz holiday, ONA reports.
The Head of State noted that All measures being taken by the Azerbaijani state are necessary to protect the health of the people and the security of our country: "Therefore, I ask every citizen to realize their responsibility and to pay special attention to representatives of the older generation. The elderly have always enjoyed great respect in Azerbaijani society. I have expressed my thoughts on this topic in sufficient detail, but I want to say again that this is one of the main pillars of our society. Our traditions, national values, respect and attention to representatives of the older generation are our national feature, and we must protect these values. In the current circumstances, representatives of the older generation need to be treated with special attention. Respect for them should be demonstrated not in word, but in deed, because it is the elderly people who have the most serious implications in connection with this disease. I am sure that together we will fight this disease that has gripped the world and turned into a pandemic, and this struggle will yield results."
