President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has today held a press conference with Azerbaijani, Turkish and foreign journalists on the anniversary of the Khojaly massacre. The President of Azerbaijan broke the world record by answering journalists' questions for 4 hours at a press conference broadcast live by 24 TV channels and attended by about 100 local and foreign journalists from around the world.
Axar.az reports that the statement came from Turkish media.
The meeting was attended by about 100 journalists from the United States, Great Britain, Iran, Spain, Turkey, Russia and other countries.
The president won the sympathy of the world media by answering questions in four languages without drinking water.
During the conference, which was broadcast live on 24 TV channels, the President answered questions in English, Russian and Turkish. It was stated that Ilham Aliyev also knew French.
At an online press conference due to the pandemic, Ilham Aliyev did not ignore the questions of foreign journalists who arrived in Baku with the organization of the Global Council of Journalists (GCJ).
Chairman of the KGC Board Mehmet Ali Dim said that the President broke the world record with a 4-hour non-stop conference:
"I have never seen such a patient leader," he said. He answered all the questions sincerely. The Azerbaijani people are very lucky. Such an experienced and educated leader could not be in every country. "
London-based journalist and KGK Deputy Secretary-General Aynur Tattersall said the meeting with world leaders lasted an average of half an hour to an hour.
"I have been a journalist for 25 years, watching press conferences around the world. It is the first time I see a world leader answer a journalist's question in his own language for such a long time.”
