Czech Ambassador: We Should Expand Our Cooperation
The Azerbaijan State Translation Centre (AzSTC) on June 02, Wednesday, received a visit from H.E. Milan Ekert, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Czech Republic to Azerbaijan, and Daniel Putik, Deputy Head of Mission.
The meeting focused on world literature, including samples of Czech literature, AzSTC has over the years published in Azerbaijani in different years, discussing further steps to expand Azerbaijani-Czech literary ties.
The Ambassador said: “We are proud of what your Centre always paid to the Czech literature and language. We appreciate the appearance of Czech authors’ works on the Khazar literary magazine, and perfect translation and publication into Azerbaijani works by prominent Czech writers, such as Jaroslav Hašek, Karel Sis, Ivan Klima, Milan Kundera. We hope that the book An Anthology of Azerbaijani Literature, due to be published in Prague this year, will be a valuable contribution to the Czech literary environment, Czech-Azerbaijani literary and cultural ties, and we at the Embassy consider it useful to further expand cooperation with your Centre. There is a great demand to acquaint the Czech readership with classical and modern Azerbaijani literature in the full sense of the word.”
In conclusion, copies of the books Prague and Prague Legends with a graceful design containing Prague’s ancient architecture were donated by the diplomats on behalf of the Embassy.
