The event began with a moment of silence in memory of the sons of the Motherland, who heroically died for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

The Secretary of the Security Council of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Colonel-General Ramil Usubov, thanked the head of the State Security Service, Colonel-General Ali Nagiyev for the conditions created for such an event, and the Assistant to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Hikmet Hajiyev for participation in the event. The speaker noted that as a result of the successful domestic and foreign policy pursued by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ilham Aliyev, our country is recognized as a place of stability in the world, which, in turn, laid the foundation for the comprehensive development of all areas. Today, without the direct participation of Azerbaijan, it is impossible to carry out international transport and logistics and huge energy projects, to make important political decisions. At the same time, it was noted that recently, especially after the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, some forces are trying to destabilize the region, by realizing their insidious plans and resort to various provocations. Speaking about the joint effective struggle of special services and law enforcement agencies against these threats, Colonel-General Ramil Usubov said that the necessary measures are being taken to increase the military potential and defense capability of the state.

Assistant to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan - Head of the Foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration Hikmet Hajiyev spoke about the reliable provision of national security, which is a priority for each state, and the importance of the developed National Security Concept under the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev. Noting that the main factor against the security of our state for almost 30 years was the aggressive policy pursued by Armenia, the head of the department said that as a result of the victory of the Azerbaijani Army in the Patriotic War and the defeat of Armenian fascism, under the decisive leadership of the Supreme Commander a new order of security was formed in the region.

Speaking at the event, the head of the State Security Service, Colonel-General Ali Naghiyev, stressed the importance of the event and the need to combine efforts to combat threats to the country's security.It was emphasized that, despite Azerbaijan's calls for peace, there are destructive actions of forces living with revanchist ideas, which still do not want to come to terms with the real situation in the region after the Great Patriotic War. Thus, the hateful elements in Armenia, unable to come to terms with the current situation, constantly conduct propaganda against our country, trying to sow discord between the various peoples living in Azerbaijan, trying to aggravate relations between neighboring countries and our republic. Under the leadership of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Mr. Ilham Aliyev, the relevant state bodies are closely monitoring the possible provocations of Armenians against our country and taking adequate measures. Colonel-General Ali Naghiyev informed about the measures being taken to neutralize the intelligence activities of various foreign intelligence services against Azerbaijan, and also noted that the involvement of some citizens in illegal armed groups outside the country, their participation in the armed conflict through military exercises are also of concern and the attempts of these persons to commit terrorist acts in the country in the future are always in the spotlight. Speaking about the impact of crimes in the field of information security and problems caused by the Coronavirus pandemic on the overall security architecture, the head of the State Security Service said that the State Security Service will continue to take decisive measures in all of these cases, aimed at destabilizing the country.

The event continued with speeches and lectures by representatives of relevant government agencies.
