Speaking of diplomatic success, Mammadyarov named the activity in the UN Security Council, and participated in the working meeting of G-20 (Group of Twenty) foreign ministers in Mexico.

He added that this can be regarded as an increase of the world developed countries' interest in Azerbaijan and the country's leadership in the region.

Azerbaijan has been recently elected as vice-president of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Heritage, and a number of other senior positions of this organization. It has been fully supported by member-states.
