President Ilham Aliyev: Thank you. At the same time, we are holding a very successful Forum on Intercultural Dialogue and the traditional Baku Humanitarian Forum. Thus, we continue our work on building bridges between religions, cultures, countries, and Azerbaijan has already become a venue for a very active dialogue. I believe that the timing for such an important event is good. I hope it is successful and good results are achieved.
Malcolm Hoenlein: The very fact of holding is already a success. Another fact is that you and Azerbaijan have gained such credibility at the global and international level that your country has become a place of consolidation for people.
