Azerbaijanis living in the UK and Iceland organised a virtual celebration of the Azerbaijani achievement in regaining control over Nagorno-Karabakh and the seven surrounding regions, according to ‘Azerbaijan in Focus’, reporting Qafqazinfo. The event was organised by the British–Azerbaijani Society and also focused on the new tasks facing the Azerbaijani diaspora. Participants included representatives from the British–Azerbaijani Association, the Azerbaijan–Scotland Association, Buta Azerbaijan–Scotland Public Union, ‘Azeri’ Iceland–Azerbaijan Society and Azerbaijan House in London, together with other expatriate Azerbaijanis.
Fuad Muradov, Chairman, Azerbaijani State Committee for Work with the Diaspora, congratulated the participants of the meeting on the victorious conclusion to the Armenian–Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. He continued: “This great victory, achieved due to the courage of our Glorious Army, and particularly the determination of the President of Azerbaijan, Supreme Commander-in-Chief Ilham Aliyev, adds a new tone to the activities of Azerbaijanis around the world.
‘Following this, the activities of our diaspora will become more focused on the protection of the national interests of Azerbaijan and highlight promotion of the rich cultural heritage of Karabakh. Representatives of the diaspora should make enhanced efforts to establish broader ties with the public of the countries where they live, especially the media, and support our state.”
Farida Panahova, Head of the British–Azerbaijani Society, congratulated everyone on the historic victory of Azerbaijan, revealing that an international web portal for Azerbaijanis has been established and is currently being developed and expanded.
