Recognition of Azerbaijan's first democracy pride for all Azerbaijani-Americans

News.Az interview with Javid Huseynov, Ph.D., General Director of AAC and co-founder of Pax Turcica Institute. 

May 28th was formally recognized in several U.S. states. Some states earlier recognized other important dates in Azerbaijani history. What is the role of Azerbaijani diaspora in this direction?

The establishment of Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (ADR) 94 years ago was one of the most important events in the history of Azerbaijani nation. The significance of May 28th is not only about the formation of a modern Azerbaijani statehood, but also about the universal values and democratic principles upon which that statehood was formulated.
