WORD OR I I
Academician, vice-president of National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan, director of the Institute of Literature named after N. Ganjavi Isa Gabibbeyli:
- I was fortunate enough to visit hospitable sunny Uzbekistan several times. These trips left the most warm and indelible impressions. And today I feel overwhelmed with a sense of pride in the success of the conference, which brought together so many prominent figures of science, culture and art. This is an indicator that my compatriots appreciate and cherish the strong ties of friendship and sincere brotherhood that have developed with the Uzbek people.
Director of the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center in Uzbekistan Samir Abbasov:
- Our main task is to make efforts for the further development and strengthening of the bonds of friendship. The shown documentary film is the result of our long and painstaking work in the archival funds of «Uzbekfilm» JSC. It shows the common history, culture and traditions of the Uzbek and Azerbaijani peoples.
Doctor of Philology Almaz Ulvi Binnatova:
- Both Azerbaijanis and Uzbeks have always inspired and continue to inspire images and works of close in spirit great personalities - Nizami and Navoi, Fuzuli and Shayhzoda, Babur and Khatai, whose greatest creations and legacy are rightfully placed in the treasury of world civilization. We expected that today's forum will have such success. Many of the participants of the conference were interested in visiting Uzbekistan.
