Pakistani expert: Human values are forgotten in conflict settlement policy
Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 5 /Trend M.Aliyev/
We are living in a very sensitive world where everything can change within a moment, participant of the Baku International Humanitarian Forum and representative of Pakistani delegation Shahzad Vazem noted, answering to journalists' questions on Nagorno Karabakh conflict.
"Terrorism and a number of conflicts could be shown as examples to that. Essential elements are always forgotten in conflict settlement. Human values are violated in conflict settlement values. People can come into conflict for the sake of any interest, including social, economic or ethnic grounds," Vazem added.
He said discussion of intercultural issues is one of the peculiarities of the forum.
"According to modern challenges, it's a very important feature. One cannot follow his own interest while forming any policy. Although world countries accept different cultures, languages and religions, the right decisions are not made during the dialogue. Ethnic issues mostly remain on paper. We have to gather representatives of different cultures as well as politically responsible people together. The importance of ideology realisation was also stressed at the forum. This is the most important message which I have taken from this forum, "Vazem stated.
The Baku International Humanitarian Forum is an authoritative science and political global platform set up to search for answers to global challenges which are faced by humanity in the 21st Century. The holding of a wide range of dialogues, exchanges of opinions and discussion on the most important issues of humanitarian cooperation are the event's main objective.
Famous state figures, Nobel laureates, 15 ex-presidents, heads of various governments, ministers, well-known figures in the fields of education, science and culture are attending the forum.
The first Baku International Humanitarian Forum under the slogan 'XXI century: hopes and challenges' took place in October 2011. The forum organisers are Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev and Russian president Vladimir Putin.
