To the Honored Art Worker of Azerbaijan, writer Magsud Ibrahimbeyov – May 14, 1995

Distinguished Magsud!

I congratulate you, the prominent representative of the Azerbaijani literature, great writer and cinematographer, famous both in our republic and abroad, on your 60th anniversary.

You are one of the persons, who founded a new literary trend in the development of the Azerbaijani literature with your creative-activists. You have a great share in spreading and reading of our literature in the world. Our heroes living in the intersection of two cultural phases and two languages have brought fresh climate to the Azerbaijani prose. They are both modern and national. Just for this reason no one has been indifferent towards your creative work.

Your contributions to the Azerbaijani cinematography are great. Your new works on the world stages and cinema screens fill every person with the trust to tomorrow and high ideals besides reflecting the bitter reality.

I am sure that you will work selflessly on the way of the independent Azerbaijan, and will do your best for the development of our literature and promotion of it in the world. I wish you good health and successes on this road.

Heydar Aliyev,

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
