I have the pleasure to inform you that I attended the "2ND WORLD FORUM ON INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE – LIVING TOGETHER PEACEFULLY IN A DIVERSE WORLD”, 29 May - 1 June 2013, organized by the Government of Azerbaijan in Baku.
Being the Chairman of Global Dialogue Foundation, and Unity in Diversity under the auspices of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC), I was invited by the Government of Azerbaijan as their guest and had the pleasure of taking my wife, Harini and daughter, Mridula, with me.
We had the honour of being in the presence of His Excellency President Ilham Aliyev,President of Azerbaijan, and His Excellency Mr. Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, the United Nations High Representative and the President for the Alliance of Civilizations (UNOAC).
