In her speech, Gunay Afandiyeva stressed the important role of the Turkic-speaking peoples in world history and culture, which are united by common historical roots, rich heritage, language, art, literature, traditions, national and spiritual values.

She pointed out that Turkic culture has contributed to world culture and gifted the world with many prominent thinkers, writers, poets and scientists.

Gunay Afandiyeva noted that that the International Turkic Culture and Heritage Foundation was created by the initiative of President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev with the support of the heads of state of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey. Notably, Uzbekistan and Hungary have joined the organization since last year.

Furthermore, Gunay Afandiyeva briefed conference participants about the Foundation's activities carried out to study, preserve, and promote the cultural heritage of the Turkic world in the international arena.

In her speech, Gunay Afandiyeva also touched upon the cultural heritage of Nagorno-Karabakh, which is an integral part not only of Azerbaijan, but the entire Turkic world as a whole.

Reporting on the destruction by the occupiers of the historical, religious monuments, examples of architecture and art of Azerbaijan located in Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding areas, Gunay Afandiyeva stated that the organization she heads is seriously concerned about the current state of the destroyed cultural heritage.

She demonstrated books published under the auspices of the Foundation, which clearly show the damage caused to cultural monuments, as well as convey the historical truth about Karabakh.

Gunay Afandiyeva stressed the importance of further expanding the bilateral ties between the Foundation and the South Korea. She emphasised the importance of establishing mutual relations between different cultures.

The events were followed by various presentations, musical and stage performances.

Initiated in 2012, Turkic Culture and Heritage Foundation focuses on preservation of Turkic heritage in member countries as well as conducting projects in collaboration with partners in third countries.

The Foundation provides assistance in the protection, study and promotion of Turkic culture and heritage through supporting and funding various activities, projects and programs. It carries out its activities in cooperation with TURKSOY and the Turkic Academy.

Cooperation Council of the Turkic Speaking States (CCTSS) is an intergovernmental organization, which aims at promoting comprehensive cooperation among Turkic Speaking States.

It is difficult to convey the feeling when one sees how the civilization, created by the Azerbaijani people over the centuries, died here as result of Armenian occupation, Secretary General of TURKSOY Dusen Kaseinov, who is in Azerbaijan’s Aghdam city as part of the delegation of TURKSOY and the Turkic Council, told Trend on Jan. 17.

“Passing by the fertile lands, I thought that just as after a drought these fertile lands await rain, so this land awaits its poems, its architectural structures that have been created here for centuries,” Kaseinov added. “Having united, we, all Turkic peoples, will give these lands a new life, we will revive these lands spiritually and culturally on an economic and financial basis.
