Former Secretary-General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation

Azerbaijan is the most important country in the Caucasus and is the center of Islam and the center of regional culture. However, Your Excellency, in your speech you have opened up great horizons for us. We were amazed by the deep experience and knowledge of Heydar Aliyev in the field of history and culture, as well as his world-renowned state experience. It was the greatest happiness for me and for many of my brothers to hear not only the thoughts and experiences of the past, but also the thoughts about the future from the founder of the state in the process of being established. This is the best memory for us.
