“Romania is one of the first countries to recognize Azerbaijan’s independence. We had very warm relations with former Azerbaijani president Heydar Aliyev. I often visited Azerbaijan, we used to meet in Istanbul. Our relations with Azerbaijan were always positive and dynamic, and I believe that it will be so,” ex-president of Romania Ion Ilescu told the APA.
Ion Ilescu attending the conference “Role of media in the development of tolerance and mutual understanding” organized by Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry and the Organization of the Islamic Conference highly appreciated Azerbaijan’s initiative.
“Representatives of 17 nations live in Romania and all of them are represented in the parliament. Thousands of Muslims – mainly Turks and Tatars live in Romania. They established different organizations and have representatives in the parliament,” he said. /APA/
