6 June 2024, Berlin-Tiergarten, Germany: The Embassy of Azerbaijan in Germany organized a large event at the Azerbaijan Cultural Center in Berlin in connection with Independence Day. The event was attended by numerous Bundestag deputies, high-ranking officials of German state institutions, ambassadors from foreign countries, representatives of the media, scientists and cultural figures, as well as members of the Azerbaijani, Turkish, and other communities living in Germany, totaling more than 500 guests. The doyen of the diplomatic corps accredited to Germany, Archbishop Dr. Nikola Eterović, was amongst the guests at the function. 

At the event, Azerbaijani children participating in the language course at the “Khari Bulbul” Azerbaijan Culture House sang the national anthems of Azerbaijan and Germany. Guests subsequently watched a short film prepared in connection with COP29, which this year is being hosted by Azerbaijan. 

The Ambassador of Azerbaijan to Germany, Nasimi Aghayev, noted that 106 years ago, the Azerbaijani people created the first secular republic in the Muslim world. The ambassador highlighted many successes of the republic, particularly emphasizing the recognition of women’s voting rights. He mentioned that the republic, which ended in 1920, was restored with the declaration of independence in 1991. The ambassador spoke of the unparalleled services of the National Leader Heydar Aliyev in the establishment of modern Azerbaijani statehood, the rapid development path of Azerbaijan under the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev, and also discussed the importance of the restoration of our country’s territorial integrity as a result of the 44-day Patriotic War from the perspective of statehood.

At the event, Matthias Lüttenberg, the representative for Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, and Central Asia of the German Federal Foreign Office, delivered a congratulatory speech on behalf of the German government for Independence Day. In his speech, he expressed satisfaction with the dynamic development of Azerbaijan-Germany relations.

Our fellow musician living in Germany, Tural Ismayilov, led the “Caucasian Consort” group, which performed Azerbaijani and international jazz music samples to the delight of the guests.
