Baku, November 17, AZERTAC
President of the News Agencies World Council, CEO of Press Association Clive Marshal has hailed President Ilham Aliyev`s command of English as a group of participants of the Baku-hosted 5th News Agencies World Congress had an audience with the Azerbaijani leader.
"Represented at this round table today we have news agencies from every corner of the world, and we selected a number of them to ask you questions. I think I speak on behalf of everybody when I say that we were impressed with your speech yesterday. We were particularly impressed with your command of English. It is fantastic," Clive Marshal said.
"Many of us have come to your country on a number of occasions over the last three years as we prepared for this event. And it has been a privilege to see both the developments in Baku, and some of us also had a chance to visit some of the small villages. May be my pronunciation will be wrong, one village was called Khinalig where we were welcomed by villagers, and they served us breakfast. This gave us a different insight into your country," he added.
