Ali Ahmadov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Azerbaijan said at the event that the problem of refugees and IDPs is a matter of concern in the world today. There are more than 70 million refugees and IDPs in the world. The world states and politicians should make serious efforts to solve this problem. 

 

Rovshan Rzayev, Chairman of the State Committee for Refugees and IDPs, said that the main purpose of today`s event is to underline once again the importance of the problem. Fundamental works are being carried out in Azerbaijan on refugee and IDP problem. However, this problem creates great concern around the world.
