Dusen Kaseinov

To Chairman of Board of Azerbaijan State News Agency (AZERTAC) Mr. Aslan Aslanov

​Dear Mr. Aslan Aslanov,

On behalf of the Permanent Council of the International Organization of Turkic Culture (TURKSOY) and on my own behalf, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to you and the entire staff of AZERTAC on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of Azerbaijan State News Agency.

Founded by the Government of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic in 1920, AZERTAC functioned under various names during the Soviet period. The agency restored its historical name after Azerbaijan regained state independence and now continues to fulfill its noble mission. 

TURKSOY and AZERTAC have been closely cooperating for many years. AZERTAC is regularly delivering the news about the TURKSOY's activities regardless of the country where they are carried out to Azerbaijan and the international community.

I would like to particularly emphasize cooperation between TURKSOY Secretary General and AZERTAC’s bureau in Turkey. The agency instantly publishes news about the activities of TURKSOY in Turkey, including interviews with important personalities of the Turkic world visiting Ankara.

AZERTAC has been honored with TURKSOY’s press award by the Organization’s Secretariat General for its wide-ranging coverage of news on the Turkic world`s culture.

I am looking forward to continuing the high level cooperation between our organizations in the future, and congratulate you once again on your anniversary and wish you new successes in your honorable activity.

Yours sincerely,


Dusen Kaseinov

Secretary General of TURKSOY
