7. December 2018


At the Hazai Library in Budapest the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Azerbaijan and its first parliamentary session on December 7, 1918 were commemorated.

On December 7, 2018 at the Hazai Library in Budapest H. E. Ambassador Vilayet Guliyev of Azerbaijan presented his book written on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the proclamation of the Republic of Azerbaijan in 1918. The book details the work, the political mission and the numerous difficulties the delegation of Azerbaijan was confronted with at the Paris Peace Conference (1919-1923). Their mission achieved the recognition of the state of Azerbaijan by the great powers and the proclamation of the Republic on May 28, 1918. In his welcoming speech Ambassador János Hóvári referred to this era as the beginning of Azerbaijani diplomacy.

On December 7 of the same year the independent parliament held its first session. Ambassador Guliyev recounted the several hundred laws that were debated and adopted, including the one on equality for women and their right to vote.

The short-lived independence (19 months) of Azerbaijan ended after the occupation of the country by the Bolshevik army (April 1920). The Azeri people had to wait until 1991 to regain their freedom and the opportunity to live in a democratic state. 

H. E. Ambassador Ahmet Akif Oktay of the Republic of Turkey spoke about the importance of 1918 in the history of Azerbaijan. He emphasized the excellent cooperation between the two countries by citing President Heydar Aliyev’s phrase: „One nation, two countries”. ”

„The fact that it was the Hazai Library that hosted the presentation of this exciting volume has a particular relevance: it symbolises what an outstanding figure Academician, Turkologist Prof. György Hazai in the Turkic world was” – said Ambassador Guliyev.
