"The committee chairman failed to organize this work well. The funds allocated for events involving Azerbaijanis around the world have not yet reached their destination. The chairman was not able to exercise his powers. They held major events, but no concrete work has been done yet. Therefore, the country’s president has signed an order to dismiss the chairman,” he added.
