President Ilham Aliyev: Main goal of the Coronavirus Response Fund is to further strengthen national solidarity

“The main goal of the Coronavirus Response Fund is to further strengthen national solidarity,” said President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev as he was interviewed by the Azerbaijan Television.

“The main goal behind establishing the Fund is to ensure that everyone, within the limits of their capabilities, can show a civic position, solidarity and mercy, which are the main pillars of our society, so that we can show ourselves and the whole world that we are a great nation,” the head of state said.

“I am glad that despite the short period of time, donations into this Fund already amount to large figures. When the Fund was established, 20 million manats were allocated to it from the President’s Contingency Fund. The Fund has been receiving donations for several days now.”

“Taking this opportunity, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all people and companies that have made donations into the Fund. This shows our unity, our strength, demonstrates that together we will overcome this disease,” the President added.
