Day of employees of the diplomatic service of Azerbaijan (09/07)

Every year on July 9, Azerbaijan celebrates the professional holiday of all diplomatic workers of the Republic - the Day of employees of the bodies of the diplomatic service of Azerbaijan, established by a decree of President Ilham Aliyev dated August 24, 2007.

The resolution of the head of state literally says: “Given the role of national diplomacy in the creation of the first Democratic Republic in the Muslim world and the process of building an independent Azerbaijani state at the present stage, and guided by the adoption on July 9, 1919 of an interim instruction on the secretariat of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan, I decide to annually celebrate 9 July as a professional holiday for employees of the diplomatic service of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

The country has the Law “On the Diplomatic Service” No. 137-IIГ dated June 8, 2001, which establishes the legal basis for the organization of the diplomatic service, which is one of the types of public service in the Republic of Azerbaijan, the legal status of civil servants in the diplomatic service.
