Baku, November 27, AZERTAC
President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has said the country is already known worldwide as a center of multiculturalism. “Azerbaijan has never has and, I am sure, never will have any confrontations on ethnic or religious grounds,” the head of state told the 12th session of ISESCO`s General Conference in Baku.
“We strongly believe that multiculturalism has a great future. Some politicians and public figures should be more careful in their statements, because there is no alternative to multiculturalism. The alternative is discrimination, Islamophobia and xenophobia. This path can’t lead to the future.” “Therefore, our policies and initiatives seek to strengthen inter-religious relations in the region,” President Ilham Aliyev added.
