Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug. 26 / Trend T.Hajiyev /
Azerbaijani Presidential Administration Political Analysis and Information Provision Department head Elnur Aslanov believes it is extremely important for Azerbaijan, which is in a state of war with Armenia, to gain a victory in the information war.
"Azerbaijan's victory in the information war depends not only on those who work in Baku. It also depends on our fellow countrymen living and studying abroad," Aslanov said at the opening of the 9th International Summer Forum of Azerbaijani Alumni and Youth Studying Abroad (ASAIF) "Baku - city of the youth". "The information war is not only based on the historical facts. This is also propaganda of a rich culture and development of Azerbaijan,"
He underscored that the Azerbaijani youth have heroes like Mubariz Ibrahimov and Ramil Safarov, willing to sacrifice their lives for the motherland.
Aslanov said Azerbaijan needs active citizens and the young people participating in today's forum are really such citizens.
About 400 students from 35 countries attend the ASAIF Forum.
The forum will operate several sections such as "Know-Karabakh and tell others", "Discover the capital of Eurovision - 2012", "Azerbaijan in social media" and "Academic propaganda in Azerbaijan".
