“The place we are gathered today is of great importance. It has a historical meaning. This is the place where the First Turkology Congress commenced its activities in February-March of 1926. It was held just in the big event hall of the Presidium of ANAS. The transition of Turkic people to common alphabet was discussed at the congress and 111 votes were for and 7 against. The issue on transition of Turkic people to a common alphabet is on the way towards reality. This matter is of great importance for the unity of the Turkic world. This will also realize the ideas of the participants of the First Turkology Congress who were exiled. 80th anniversary of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences will be celebrated in 2025. The Academy had distinguished services in the development of science, national thinking and in the protection of our native language within this period”-said Isa Habibbeyli, the academician.
