I think the historical event that had great effect on my country is a Treaty of Gulistan.Because with the deal of this treaty that happened in 1813 Azerbaijan was separeted into two parts.South azerbaijan was taken by Iran and present Azerbaijan was taken to Russia.And this separation caused big affliction for my country.This treaty most afflicted to our development of country,independence and dignity.
Azerbaijan was probably the most advanced country in the Caucasus.But after this horrible treaty my country couldn't develop in a high level.It all depends on invader.All resources of country were in their hand.Such resources as petrol and natural gas reserves.It was hampered our development very much.
The biggest disaster for all countries in the world is the loss of their independence.Azerbaijan was one of this countries.We couldn't deal with another countries without agreement of Russia.And it means that we couldn't export our resources to other countries separately and we couldn't share our cultures achievements with other countries.
This treaty influenced people's dignity because for ages people lived in a common country.But after this treaty steel border separated one nation into two parts,as a body was divided into two parts.Some families lost their close relatives in opposite side of the border.Even one of the singers sang about this separation.And in the result of this separation young members of these families don't aware about their relatives.
After this treaty Azerbaijan lost its powerty in caucasus territory.But after many years he was able to stand up in all areas and to be as it was.
