Baku, December 21, AZERTAC
“Irevan: Hidden Truth” documentary has been presented (in Azerbaijani, Russian and English languages) in Baku.
The film was shot as part of cooperation between Virtual Karabakh Information-Communication Technology Center, the Institute of History of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences and the Ministry of Youth and Sport.
Speaking at the ceremony, coordinator of Virtual Karabakh Information-Communication Technology Center, chair of the Public Council for Youth Affairs Nuraddin Mehdiyev provided an insight into the project. He said the film aims to increase the international community`s awareness of the cultural legacy of the ancient Azerbaijani city of Irevan.
Presidential Assistant for Public and Political Affairs Ali Hasanov described the film as a serious project. “It is an important project, but it is not enough. We should give an updated description of the history of the ancient city of Irevan, as well as mosques, monuments there. Postcards, booklets depicting this should be made, and then handed out to tourists so that they see how Armenians destroy Azerbaijan`s history. Our diplomats who travel abroad, our fellow countrymen who live in foreign countries as well as our young people should contribute to the promotion of this film worldwide,” he said.
Minister of youth and sport Azad Rahimov said Armenians destroy intangible, cultural history of the Azerbaijani people in the occupied lands. “These atrocities had previously been committed in Irevan, then in Zangazur, Goycha, Verdibasar and other historic Azerbaijani territories. But Irevan suffered the most damage,” he said.
