Azer News - - FRONT PAGE - By Nazrin Gadi­mova

Queen Noor of Jor­dan has been awarded the Nizami Gan­javi In­ter­na­tional Award in Wash­ing­ton.

Nizami Gan­javi was a great Azer­bai­jani poet and the 12th cen­tury great­est rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Eastern Re­nais­sance.

At the awards cer­e­mony Queen Noor ex­pressed great sat­is­fac­tion with her par­tic­i­pa­tion in the South Cau­ca­sus Fo­rum in Azer­bai­jan's cap­i­tal Baku, which was or­ga­nized in May by the Nizami Gan­javi In­ter­na­tional Cen­ter and the Club of Madrid un­der the pa­tron­age of the Pres­i­dent of Azer­bai­jan.

"Se­cu­rity of the an­cient ar­chi­tec­ture and a re­flec­tion of the past in the mod­ern build­ings in Baku fas­ci­nated me," the Queen said at the cer­e­mony.

Queen Noor also said Nizami Gan­javi was an ex­tra­or­di­nary poet whose works are still rel­e­vant to­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the Queen, the creative work of Nizami Gan­javi is as­so­ci­ated not only with Azer­bai­jan but also with the his­tory of lit­er­ary thought of the world, and makes a great con­tri­bu­tion to in­ter­cul­tural dia­logue.

"Pro­mo­tion by Nizami Gan­javi of the in­ter­cul­tural dia­logue, which is so im­por­tant for all of us, as well as of peace­ful co­ex­is­tence, gen­der equal­ity, and equal­ity of peo­ple, left an in­deli­ble mark on the de­vel­op­ment of civ­i­liza­tion," she said.

She also said that de­spite its short his­tory the Nizami Gan­javi In­ter­na­tional Cen­ter has given a new im­pe­tus to the pro­tec­tion and pro­mo­tion of the trea­sures of Nizami Gan­javi, and the unity of world lead­ers in the sup­port for this idea can only be wel­comed.

Ac­cord­ing to the Queen, pro­tec­tion and sup­port of Pres­i­dent Il­ham Aliyev is the big­gest sup­port for the suc­cess­ful con­tin­u­a­tion of the Nizami Gan­javi In­ter­na­tional Cen­ter's ac­tiv­ity and care for Azer­bai­jani cul­ture.

Queen Noor said it is very com­mend­able to see the book and DVD "The Po­etry of the Mag­nif­i­cent Sage" de­voted to Nizami Gan­javi by Is­mail Ser­ageldin, who is one of the most in­flu­en­tial per­son­al­i­ties in the field of science and cul­ture of the Mus­lim world, and it will en­able more peo­ple to un­der­stand the work of Nizami.

The Queen is de­lighted to have re­ceived the Nizami Gan­javi In­ter­na­tional Award. Ac­cord­ing to her, as an hon­orary mem­ber of the Cen­ter, she will pro­vide full sup­port and share ex­pe­ri­ence with other mem­bers of the Board of Trus­tees for fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of the or­ga­ni­za­tion.
