Aghgoyunlu state - angle of armistice between worlds of Islam and Christianity, as well as East and West

Baku, April 7, AZERTAC

The Aghgoyunlu state, which composes an important stage in Azerbaijan’s national history, was famous for its socio-economic revival, vast territories, internal and external policy, position in the geo-political area and their wise and arrogant sovereigns which ruled in the 15th century.

It was famous not only among the neighboring states, but also much beyond, in far Europe. If one reason for their fame concerned its location along the Great Silk Road where the East and West come into junction, the other was the palace culture which was well grounded on the dialogue of civilizations which is much welcomed nowadays by the world's peace loving community. The deeds of the Aghgoyunlu state strived to save humanity with its internal and external policy which was making great contributions to integrity between the East and West.

In the Aghgoyunlu Palace which was to some extent the point of intersection of East-West values, religious tolerance and representatives of other nationalities and daughter-in-laws from those nations were highly respected. Distinguished for establishing their laws and orders on the basis of religious-ethnic peculiarities and values of Oriental and Turkic worlds, the sovereigns of Aghgoyunlu always tried to go to negotiations for the happiness of their nation, and by signing peace treaties, they provided peace for the neighboring Turkic nations. The greatest merit of the state of Aghgoyunlu in history was its being the angle of armistice between the worlds of Islam and Christianity, as well as between the East and West.
