According to Heydar Aliyev, it was not easy to erect a monument to Narimanov. Aliyev visited Suslov and Brezhnev twice, but they, as Aliyev recalled, had completely different information about Narimanov. Finally Aliyev managed to get his way. On June 6, 1972, the opening of the monument took place. Heydar Aliyev delivered a speech at the opening.
