Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev visited on May 27 the monument, which was erected as the tribute to the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic, on the occasion of the Republic Day.

A guard of honor was lined up around the monument on Istiglaliyyat Street in Baku.

President Aliyev laid a wreath at the monument as the military orchestra performed the anthem of Azerbaijan.

May 28, 1918, marks the establishment of the ADR, the first independent republic and democratic state on the East. Although it existed for only 23 months, it brought about great progress in foreign policy, and introduced Azerbaijan to the international community.

Azerbaijan, which gained its independence in 1991 after the collapse of the Soviet Union, celebrates May 28 annually as the Republic Day.
