The statement says: “Today is very anxious period for Europe and Asia. The economic crisis in the European Union is slowly coming to an end, but the Eurozone is still facing internal problems. Europe needs reforms to restore the stability and tries to achieve further development of the economic co-ordination. The Russian-Ukrainian conflict has turned into a more complicated problem than the fall of the Berlin Wall. Moreover, military even political conflicts, which are not seen in Middle East for decades, flare up in recent times as well. Therefore, I am looking forward to the third Global Forum.
Baku is an ethnic and ancient city inhabited by the sovereign people of different nationalities. This is the best place to discuss a number of problems. I hope that remaining true to the traditions, positive inspiring ideas will be expressed and accepted at the forum”.
