The ADAMI representatives received a warm welcome from the heads of Azerbaijani television and by students and dean of the faculty of Baku University. Throughout the visit, Azerbaijani partners expressed enthusiastic support for ADAMI's work and promised further cooperation in promoting the ADAMI idea.
