President Ilham Aliyev gave his first ever television interview since he came to power in 2003. The interviewer was a pro-government journalist and the interview was broadcast on a pro-government television statement, but it attracted widespread interest from the public. Critics say the interview indicates the government is worried about the growing public dissatisfaction, though this nation has never had a free and fair election since its independence 27 years ago. Pray for the salvation of the president and his family (The Bible, 1 Thessalonians 5:9).
