At the same time, the real support of the people were skilled builders, generous entrepreneurs, mahalla activists, respected representatives of the older generation, and initiative youth. Our people, who are together overcoming any challenges, have become a powerful force in these difficult days. I would like to take this opportunity to emphasize once again that I bow down to our patient, hardworking, noble, and selfless people for their great heroism.
