Minister of Culture Adil Karimli addresses the forum in China

The visit of the delegation of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the People's Republic of China continues.

As part of the visit, the Azerbaijani delegation participated in the opening ceremony of the 6th International Silk Road Cultural Expo organized in Dunhuang, Gansu Province, China, on September 6.

During the event, Adil Karimli, the Minister of Culture of the Republic of Azerbaijan, delivered a speech at the Forum on Inheriting Silk Road Culture and Building a New Form of Civilization organized as part of the 6th Silk Road International Cultural Expo.

The Minister expressed his gratitude to the organizing committee for the invitation to the prestigious event and warm hospitality. He stressed that his visit to China was highly productive and memorable.

It was noted that the safeguarding of the cultural heritage of the nations along the Silk Road, along with dedication to traditions and common goals, significantly contributed to global stability and progress, particularly in the age of globalization.

It was stressed that Azerbaijan, with its historical contributions to enhancing communication along the Silk Road, remains dedicated to its historical mission: "Azerbaijan has hosted numerous international conferences focused on the Great Silk Road and initiated major regional infrastructure projects. The Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway and the Baku International Sea Trade Port provide a convenient route for shipments from China to the West. Furthermore, Azerbaijan places great importance on the preservation of Silk Road cultural heritage and has implemented appropriate legal and institutional measures to protect historical monuments at the national level. Additionally, Azerbaijan actively participates in the UNESCO Silk Roads Program."

Highlighting Azerbaijan's significant commitment to intercultural dialogue, the Minister provided details on the "Baku Process," proposed by President Ilham Aliyev in 2008: "The Baku Process, now a global platform for intercultural dialogue, includes partners such as the UN Alliance of Civilizations, UNESCO, the World Tourism Organization, the Council of Europe, and ICESCO."

The Minister concluded his speech by wishing the forum success.
