Kamal Abdullah congratulated the students on graduation and wished them success in their future life, "I am sure the university will miss the students and you will miss the university. Congratulations to every one of our graduates. May your life path be open and successful. I trust that you will always remember this day. This year was very successful for our country. Azerbaijan has gained a victory, integrity of its native lands has been restored. At the same time, Azerbaijan has established truth and justice. My advice to all graduates is: always be close to truth, act with love and from heart. As a result of successful political steps, taken by the President of Azerbaijan, and dedication of the Azerbaijani army, we are living happy days today. But it is a great responsibility to be a victorious nation. We have to show the world the culture of being a nation. For this we should always have compassion in our hearts. What we cannot equate with ourselves, we must not equate with someone else. We should be able to look at all the peoples of the world with the same eye. We should be able to love everyone, regardless of religion or race. This was bequeathed to us by our Multicultural ancestors. I embrace you all and offer my heartfelt congratulations. I wish you conquering new horizons. I believe that each of us will do our best for the happy future of Azerbaijan, for the prosperity of our Motherland, for the further development of the Azerbaijan Languages University. Good luck to every one of you!".
