The Global Young Leaders Forum, being held in Baku, helps people with different perceptions and views to find a common language with each other and reach a consensus, said Latvia’s former President Valdis Zatlers, who also participates in the Forum.
Zatlers noted that such events contribute to restoration of peace and stability.
The forum is of great importance and its participants exchange their experiences and opinions, he said.
They come from countries with different political systems, so the Forum helps people with different views find a common language with each other, added the former Latvian president.
He went on to say that exchange of opinions is the best way of solving problems.
The Global Young Leaders Forum is a new platform for meetings between young people and experienced people, said Zatlers.
