Azerbaijan may play important role in strengthening of D-8
Azerbaijan’s participation in the 9th Summit of the Developing Eight Organization for Economic Cooperation (D-8) proves once again that the country may play an important role in strengthening of D-8, Naciye Selin Senocak, UNESCO Cultural Diplomacy, Governance and Education Chair Holder at Istanbul Aydin University, told Trend Oct. 21.
Senocak, who is also the director of the Center for Diplomatic and Strategic Studies (CEDS) in Paris, was commenting on the participation of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev as a special guest in the D-8 summit held in Istanbul Oct. 20.
Prior to that, Azerbaijan spoke in the UN with important initiatives that can help restoration of peace and can also become an example for the Islamic world, Senocak said.
In her opinion, as long as the Muslim countries don’t unite and achieve development, they will be threatened by a split under the influence of external forces.
“We shouldn’t forget that more than four million Muslims have died so far after the war in the Persian Gulf,” she said. “The development of Muslim countries can only take place through the strengthening of the D-8.” Read more
