Baku, June 23, AZERTAC
“I understood everything my brother Shavkat Miromonovich has said, there was no need for an interpreter. I am very pleased to have visited Tashkent yesterday, Khiva, Urgench and Khorezm today. Yesterday and today, I saw once again how close our peoples are to each other,” said President Ilham Aliyev following a concert program during a reception President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev has hosted.
“Our culture, art and, in general, the roots of our peoples are the same. The songs sung in the Azerbaijani language seemed to have been performed by Azerbaijani singers. There is no dialect. It indicates the unity of our peoples. Today I discovered a new Uzbekistan for myself. New Uzbekistan is flourishing in the person of my brother, through you. May the life of the new Uzbekistan be successful and prosperous. Inshallah, all of us – the Uzbek and Azerbaijani peoples – will be together like a fist,” the head of state noted.
