Vice-president of National Academy, academician Akif Alizade expressed confidence that the conference will be held in the atmosphere of constructive dialogue.
Head of President’s Administration, academician Ramiz Mehdiyev made a speech on the theme “Democracy in Azerbaijan: theoretical and practical issues”.
He said that freedom of expression and media are the main properties of democracy.
“The theory of democracy is enriched with new ideas in the development of society. World practice shows that democracy reflects national interests.
