Rector of AUL, acting member of ANAS, honored scientist Kamal Abdulla highlighted the importance of events organized in the framework of the Auditorium+ program. “The subject presented by the Azerbaijan research laboratory was greeted with enthusiasm both by students and me. I value the interest of students in such topics very positively. Today, the topic discussed here is of historical and political significance. One student asked a question about ethnic composition of the then government and parliament. It was an interesting question, and drew my attention. One important point in this question is that Azerbaijan always has a multicultural environment. It is no coincidence that in the writings of our prominent public and political figures, our writers, we always have records of the importance of preserving multicultural values. President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev continues this tradition and takes serious steps to protect multicultural values. Last year, as you know, was proclaimed “Year of Multiculturalism.” I want to emphasize one point here. Holding this event at the Heydar Aliyev Museum-Laboratory, I think it is not accidental and has special significance. The great leader is a genius person who carried out the ideas of the Republic at the highest level “.
