The message reads, in part:
“In just a short period of time your forum has gained wide recognition across the world as a platform for discussing the most pressing issues. Today, Azerbaijan’s capital is once again welcoming high guests and dignitaries, including high-profile politicians and public figures, Nobel Prize winners in various areas, researchers and artists from many countries.
The forum has a very rich agenda, which reflects the growing importance of humanitarian cooperation for international relations in today’s world. You are about to exchange best practice and discuss prospects for further stepping up bilateral and multilateral ties in culture, research, education and environmental protection. I am confident that this will be a very inspiring and fruitful forum, helping enhance trust and mutual understanding between people from various countries and continents.”
