Former UNESCO Director-General Federico Mayor Zaragoza, head of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Ismail Serageldin and the Club of Madrid delegation secretariat will discuss an action plan of the International Centre of Nizami Ganjavi in 2013-2014 in Baku.

For this purpose the guests will meet at the Azerbaijani State Committee for Work with Diaspora, the State Committee reported.

During the visit the Alexandria Library and the State Committee are expected to sign a memorandum of cooperation.

The Nizami Ganjavi International Center under the support of the State Committee will host presentation of the Book and DVD lecture "The Poetry of the Magnificent Sage" by Serageldin dedicated to Nizami Ganjavi on July 16.

Serageldin, Federico Mayor Zaragoza, and a Board Member of the Nizami Ganjavi International Center are expected to attend the presentation.

Earlier in June it was reported that the Nizami Ganjavi International Center plans to open its representative office at the world-famous Library of Alexandria in Egypt to coordinate the activity of the Center and promote Azerbaijani culture not only in Egypt, but also in the Middle East and Africa.

Serageldin, co-chair of the International Nizami Ganjavi Center, will supervise the office. He will discuss issues related to the project during the visit to Baku in July.

Nizami Ganjavi International Center with its head office in Azerbaijan's second largest city, Ganja, was established in September 2012 to increase awareness of the great works of Nizami Ganjavi, to help return his masterpieces to the homeland, to serve as a depository for Nizami's works, and to further develop the values embodied in his works through community engagement.

Nizami Ganjavi, the 12th century greatest representative of the Eastern Renaissance, displayed the quintessence of world literature and philosophy in his immortal work Khamsa (Five), via the aesthetic power of his art.
