AMOR Board member Emin Hajiyev greeted the participants of the conference on behalf of the Vice-President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, chairperson of the Azerbaijani Youth Organization of Russia (AYOR), Leyla Aliyeva.
"Azerbaijan played a decisive role in the victory over German fascism, because if the Azeri oil industry did not exist, the results of the war could be completely different. It was our common victory - the victory of all the peoples of the former Soviet Union," AzerTAc cited him as saying.
Hajiyev recalled with regret that since the end of the last century the Azerbaijani people have been forced to solve the Karabakh conflict. "Azerbaijan is a peace-loving country and that is why we want a peaceful settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," he stressed.
