Tokyo, October 21, AZERTAC
Presentation about Azerbaijan aroused great interest among the students of Japan's Waseda University. Professor of the University Hiroaki Mohri briefed the participants on Azerbaijan`s regaining independence on October 18 in 1991. He informed that in late October, a group of University students will visit Azerbaijan, within the framework of "Japan- Caucasus economic and cultural exchange program-2015". In order to inform the students more about the country, Azerbaijani researcher at the University of Keio, Aysu Yusifzade prepared a special presentation.
Speaking at the presentation, A.Yusifzade informed about the location at the crossroads of ancient civilizations, rich culture and achievements of Azerbaijan. She highlighted that, though, Azerbaijan declared its independence in 1991, the country entered the path of restoration and development just after the return of the national leader Heydar Aliyev to power in 1993. As a result of the successful implementation of the strategy by President Ilham Aliyev, set by the great leader, Azerbaijan achieved rapid modernization. A.Yusifzade informed about the high-level organization of the first European Games, as well as international events held in the country.
A.Yusifzade also answered the questions of the students about the history, the Armenia-Azerbaijan, Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and other issues.
Stressing the great interest of the students, professor Hiroaki Mohri expressed gratitude for detailed information about Azerbaijan.
Within the visit to Azerbaijan, the students will also go to Guba and Gusar regions, hold meetings at Baku State and Azerbaijan Languages Universities and participate in discussions on various topics.
