Baku, March 19, AZERTAC

“The Global Baku Forum has become an important international event,” said Co-chair of the Nizami Ganjavi International Center, Director of the Bibliotheca Alexandria in Egypt Ismail Serageldin in an interview with AZERTAC.

“This Forum is growing every year. The fifth edition sees huge participation of currently serving presidents, as well as former presidents and prime ministers. We are really thankful to enormous support and inspiration of President Ilham Aliyev, who has fully supported this initiative of the Nizami Ganjavi International Center. He has not only received members of Board of Trustees of the Center, but also came and spoke at the inauguration ceremony”.

Ismail Serageldin said: “The purpose of the Forum is not to focus on specific conflicts because we have many of them. We are talking about the fundamental principles that annexation of lands by war is unacceptable. We need to respect the resolutions of the UN Security Council. We hope the international public opinion will mobilize itself and stand by right.”
