On October 18, 1991, the Parliament of Azerbaijan adopted the Constitutional Act on Independence, later approved by the referendum on December 30 of the same year, thus was restored the countryâ€™s independence.
Establishment of the independent Republic of Azerbaijan is an important historical event of our life. It is true that the way to independence was not easy for us and we have undergone severe tests. As a result of military conflict and aggression of Armenia against Azerbaijan, occupation of about 20% of our territory by Armenian invaders about one million of our citizens were obliged to leave their native homes and turned into refugees and displaced people. Sabotage of internal and external forces against our statehood, disintegration of former economic relations, social and economic difficulties of the transition period and other problems made our way to independence more difficult.
The Azerbaijani people struggled for the adoption of the Constitutional act on independence and achieved to it. This event also happened at the extraordinary condition executed by the Soviet Union in Azerbaijan. On January 20 1990, the Soviet Empire committed a bloody massacre in Baku and other regions of Azerbaijan in order to destroy the mass democratic movement and freedom struggle of the Azeri nation.
The restoration of Azerbaijanâ€™s independence has created condition for the formation of democratic institutions, formalization of political parties, NGOs, development of liberal market economy in the country, and flaw of foreign investments to the country.
Now, the Republic of Azerbaijan as an independent country follows the way of democratic, law governed and secular state construction. Our society is being formed on the basis of democratic principles which have already been tested in the world practice and match our national peculiarities.
The first steps on the way to the real independence already are made but Azerbaijani people must work hard to strengthen it in the future.resources
