The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our compatriots living in the United States, the problems they faced and the work done to solve them were discussed during the discussions. Attention was focused on fact that our compatriots who lost their jobs in social isolation and students in difficult situations were provided with financial assistance, moral and educational support (for example, to register in the electronic system specially created by the relevant state bodies of the Republic of Azerbaijan) to help them effectively use the opportunities of the country where they live and organize evacuation issues.
Then they exchanged views on the activities of organizations in the quarantine and post-pandemic period and perspective measures. Various proposals have been made to celebrate May 28 - Republic Day, one of the most important historical days for our people.
It was noted that it is necessary to hold video conferences on a regular basis.
