Leonid Medvedko

Professor of Russian Academy of Sciences

Mr. President, let me sincerely thank you for the Eastern Islamic hospitality. I want to adress you – a master, teacher and academic colleague in the spirit of the East. First of all, thank you for your speech. I read your speech and I must say that you showed us, Russian scientists, a completely new attitude towards Islam. In addition to the Arab-Islamic civilization, you also spoke about the Azerbaijani Islamic civilization. I think this is very important for Islamic studies.
