Fidel Koloma Qrimberg said: “We highly appreciate your efforts to have promoted since the 1990s Chilean authors, particularly outstanding Chilean poet Pablo Neruda’s works in Azerbaijan. And we put strong emphasis on the dissemination of Azerbaijani literature across Chile and other Latin American countries. We intend to continue to strengthen this work in cooperation between your Centre and relevant institutions in Chile. We consider it important that the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Culture, which is directly dealing with these issues, be involved in these projects.”
