In Aghdam, I witnessed something I had never seen in my entire political and professional life, High Representative for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) Miguel Angel Moratinos said
He made the remarks during the meeting with President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, AzVision.az reports.
“In my statement in Aghdam, in my final statement, I said that I have some mixed feelings. First of all, I witnessed something I had never seen in my entire political and professional life. Everything is completely ruined. How can one witness such a situation in the 21st century? Secondly, I think that my visit to Aghdam went well, because your special representative showed me the plan for the future. This is a great vision, Mr. president. It is a great pleasure to see the roads, the busy people and the positive dynamics,” Moratinos said.
“Azerbaijan has always developed and this development will further continue. I have always considered myself a friend of Azerbaijan, and this time I am proud to be with you and to try to support your efforts, those of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture in my new capacity as the UN High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations,” Moratinos added.
“Thank you very much for receiving me and for the opportunity to review the work we can do together,” he said.
