Islamabad, Pakistan: Dispatch News Desk News Agency (DND) congratulates Azeri journalist friends on the 146th anniversary of Azerbaijan National Press Day that is celebrated on July 22.
DND believes this is time to appreciate and laud the role Azeri media played during 44 days’ war and reclaiming occupied lands.
Azeri media was in constant contact with international media like Dispatch News Desk (DND) News Agency and kept providing credible information from the war zone.
Collaboration of Azeri media with Pakistani media helped both because Pakistani media was receiving authentic news from war zone while Azeri narrative was promoted through Pakistani media.
In whole wartime, DND News Agency worked closely with Azeri media outlets and played a pivotal role to promote the just cause of Azerbaijan.
DND strongly believes that there is a dire need for Pakistan-Azeri media interaction in the future also because it will help to strengthen people-to-people contact also.
Azeri journalist Laman Ismayilova in her article explains the brief history of Azeri media and says that the national press, the foundation of which was laid by the great enlightener and publisher Hasan bey Zardabi, has always been the mouthpiece of progressive ideas in Azerbaijan and the country’s public and political life. The press plays a major role in the preservation and enrichment of the national and spiritual values of people.
The National Press Day proves that journalism in Azerbaijan is paid attention to and concern by the state.
