The poet's work greatly expanded the vocabulary of Lezghin language and enriched the speech of the common man. He was not only an outstanding, talented writer, but also a prominent statesman. Stalsky was a great professional, who all his life remained a humble person, who used to achieve everything by his own labor. Next year we will hold festive events in memory of his work and merits. It is our duty to honor, preserve and pass on to the new generation the memory of outstanding people of our republic," Abdulmuslimov said.
