Mentioning the special international role of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Asadov stressed that Azerbaijan has close relations with the organization. During the event, the medal "Commonwealth" was presented to the members of the Azerbaijani delegation, Ali Huseynov, Fazil Agamaly and Firudin Hajiyev.
