“Our country and ICESCO are bound by long-standing and fruitful cooperation. I am confident that the document we have signed today will be an opportunity for us, media professionals, to benefit from ICESCO’s extensive expertise in the fields of education, science and culture. Joint projects, programs, and expertise exchange will benefit journalists from the various ICESCO Member States,” Mr. Aslanov stated.
