"Dear colleagues and friends.
On the day of our professional holiday I wish all creative achievements, success, health. I am happy about the success of Mirbala Salimli, I have a long-standing respect for the activities of Yuri Varnovsky and Nazim Rza.
I have no doubt that other our colleagues have achievements in this year that please us all, but it's disappointing that the state program for the development of national cinema, announced in 2008, has not been fully implemented; Much of what was planned taking into account the proposals of our Union remained unfulfilled. But, perhaps, the situation, at least in part, will be corrected for a year and a half, remaining until the end of the program. In any case, I am confident that under all circumstances Azerbaijan will create films that are successful both in our homeland and abroad. Once again I congratulate everyone on the day of the profession, to which we dedicated our lives. " -02D-
