To People`s Artist of Azerbaijan Hajibaba Baghirov – May 13, 1994

Distinguished Hajibaba Baghirov!

I congratulate you, the favorite craftsman of our people and prominent comedian, on the 60th anniversary, and deliver you my frank wishes.

You have created a gallery of rich comic characters on the Azerbaijani scene and cinema. Besides you have also played a certain role in the development of our national culture. «Tengid-Tebligh» theatre, which was established and directed by you, occupied a special place in the moral life of the Azerbaijani people in these hard days.

Dear Hajibala! I believe that your miraculous art will become a shelter of hope and belief for our soldiers, who fight against the enemy, and selfless workers, and will tan optimism to the Azerbaijani people and loyally serve the bright future of our country. I wish you good health, new creative searches and successes in your art.

Heydar Aliyev,

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
