Ilham Aliyev: 4th President of Azerbaijan from 2003
Ilham Heydar oğlu Aliyev is the fourth and current President of Azerbaijan, serving since 31 October 2003. The son of the former Azerbaijani leader Heydar Aliyev, Ilham Aliyev was elected president of Azerbaijan in 2003 following his father's death, in an election considered fraudulent and unfair by foreign outlets. Azerbaijani foreign relations under Aliyev included strengthened cooperation with the European Union (EU) using caviar diplomacy, with Russia, with NATO via the NATO–Azerbaijan Individual Partnership Action Plan, and with the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The New York Times described Aliyev's foreign policy as being pro-Western, selling oil and gas to Europe and Israel, promoting a moderate form of Islam, and hosting "lavish international events".
