From Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu, 9th Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, member of the Nizami Ganjavi International Center

His Excellency Mr Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan 

Your Excellency,

It is with deep grief and anxiety that I am following the heinous attacks of Armenia on civilian people in Ganja and other parts of Azerbaijan. As a member of Nizami Ganjavi International Center, I am deeply concerned with illegitimate and obvious violation of international and human laws. I particularly sympathized with the brotherly people of Ganja who gave us one of the greatest poet in our history and whose name is a source of pride for all of members of this Center.

In my capacity as the 9th Secretary General of OIC, I have urged all member states to take necessary actions against the aggression and occupation of Armenia and issued a set of significant resolutions. According to these resolutions, 57-member state endorsed and acknowledged that Armenia is an aggressor and occupier; pledged financial and economic assistance to the victims of the aggression and finally condemned the destruction of historical Islamic monuments on the territory of Azerbaijan.

Today, Azerbaijan under Your Excellency’s able leadership continue to liberate significant parts of the occupied homeland.

I am proud that Nizami Ganjavi International Center took an active role in this crisis and I am sure the Center will successfully present the righteous cause of Azerbaijan to international fora through its dynamic networking.

Your Excellency, please accept the assurances of my highest consideration and my wishes for continued and constructive success.

Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu

9th Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation

Honorary President of the Turkish Society for History of Science

Member of the Nizami Ganjavi International Center
