Anggia Erma Mini, General Chairperson of Central Board of Fatayat Nahdlatul Ulama of Indonesia said:
"His Excellency Mr Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
Excellency Mr President,
Assalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb
Thank you for taking the time to engage with us in the second Baku Summit of World Religious Leaders held on November 14-15, 2019, in Baku, Azerbaijan. It was a wonderful summit experience I have ever involved. The two-day meeting presented many inspirations and meanings for me as one of the participants who was treated so well by the host. Baku is a very beautiful city that will never be forgotten in my mind.
I really appreciated with the theme concerning diversity across the world. I personally hope Indonesia could represent the meaning of the diversity. The theme strongly reflects our situation and condition who stay and live in Indonesia. Diversity is sunnatullah which actually brings a lot of grace to the world community. As religious leaders in our community, it is certainly our obligation to always be a conditioning for the people. Hopefully with this initiative, Indonesia and Azerbaijan can complement each other.
Central Board of Fatayat Nahdlatul Ulama really hopes to collaborate with Muslim women around the world. We are the largest organization of young Muslim women in Indonesia, even the world, which carries a great mission to fight for the basic rights of women, and also develops and disseminates Islam rahmatan lil alamin throughout the archipelago.
The pleasant and sustainable cooperation in the future between the two countries is hoped to continue to be well and intensively established.
Once again, thank you for the service and respect the President has given to me."
