He made remarks during the 33rd plenary session of the Canadian InterAction Council organization, which is being held March 8 in Baku on the eve of the Global Baku Forum.
The Forum will also provide an opportunity for participants to get closely acquainted with Azerbaijan, its rich history and culture, said Chrétien.

Other political figures of the world’s different countries will also deliver speeches during the event.
