Ambassador Ali Alizade said that under the leadership of Heydar Aliyev  laid the solid foundation of our relation with our brotherly country Pakistan. And today we enjoy very close and warm relations between our countries, as well as between our youth. But our common values, national interests and far-sighted political prospects show that our youth should be more close, more active, always united and cooperative.Our goal is to see the youth healthy, intelligent, educative, patriotic and committed to national values.Our youth should always be ready to defend their countries.And defence should be conducted not only on the front line, but also in the media, on social media, and on different activities.

Ambassador qouted  Muhammad Ali Jinnah as he said: When you have got that light of knowledge by means of education and when you have made yourselves strong economically and industrially, then you have got to prepared yourselves for your defence - defence against external aggression and to maintain internal security.Our youth must fully equip themselves by discipline, education, and training for the arduous task lying ahead of them.

H.E Ali Alizade said that we hope the “Pakistan-Azerbaijan Alumni Association” which we will inaugurate today, will also serve to ideas of our great leaders, further unite our people, as well as youth of both countries and will play its active role in our relation and cooperation. And will also help to strengthen cooperation with other fraternal countries. I would like to wish them good luck and great success in their endeavours.

Ambassador said that lets take example from our great leaders and take forward our countries ahead. Healthy, patriotic and intelligent youth is our future, proud of our nations.
