The Benelux Azerbaijanis Congress (BAC) expects that the Third Congress of World Azerbaijanis will show the way of transition from the coordination activities of the diaspora to lobbying activities.
"I hope that the Third Congress of World Azerbaijanis will set new tasks before us to carry out lobbying activities and indicate the way of transition from the coordination activities to lobbying activities," BAC Honorary President Sahil Gasimov said.
Baku will host the Third Congress of World Azerbaijanis on July 5, 2011.
The event will be organized in accordance with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev's decree "On the twentieth anniversary of the state independence of Azerbaijan Republic" dated Jan.21, 2011.
Gasimov said the BAC has been accredited in the European Union since 2011 and carries out lobbying activities on the European integration of Azerbaijan.
The BAC brings together various Azerbaijani and Turkish organizations operating in three European countries. It was founded in the Netherlands on Nov. 18, 2006. The Congress also includes the Iraqi Turkmen Mejlis.
