BAKU, October 24 (Itar-Tass) —— The Baku International Humanitarian Forum will be held regularly, according to an order signed by Azerbaijani President Ilkham Aliyev.
The decision was made taking into account “the success of the First International Humanitarian Forum in Baku on October 10-11 and the topicality of the international problems raised at it”.
According to the order, an organising committee chaired by presidential chief of staff Ramiz Mekhtiyev and a four-member working group have been created.
The First Baku International Humanitarian Forum was initiated by the presidents of Russia and Azerbaijan under the patronage of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and President Aliyev. It brought together prominent politicians, leading scientists and cultural figures from 20 countries, including six former presidents and five Nobel Prize winners.
