Müstəqillik. Təhlükəsizlik. Rifah" video project.
The Deputy Prime Minister noted that the international events held so far in Azerbaijan contributed to a significant change in the country's image.

Azerbaijan also actively supports the implementation of large-scale projects within the framework of UNESCO.
