state policy of Azerbaijan. President
of the country attaches great importance to the field of youth and sports.
Nation who is not thinking about its youth can not develop. The government is
trying to ensure that young people are growing more healthy, educated,
intellectual and creative. The main challenge of youth organizations operating
in this area is to support the youth. It is necessary to bring together
different cultures and to promote all the fine qualities of them. I wish you
success in this hard work and I sincerely hope that you will stay as a friend
of Azerbaijan when you back home”.
