The Baku forum will create trust and once again prove the need for something new, said the message from the former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali.
His message was read out during the opening of the 3rd Global Shared Societies Forum in Baku April 28.
"I hope Baku will host other events and conferences thanks to which the city will become a cultural center that will provide the international community with fresh ideas and new concepts taking into account the impact of the technical progress on the world," said the message.
These new ideas are supposed to help the world get prepared for creation of a new society, according to Boutros-Ghali. "Because currently, we live in an old society which operates in accordance with the old principles."
