Madrid, April 28 (AZERTAC). Queen Sofia has been presented with keepsakes as she stopped by Azerbaijan`s booth in the annual "Kermes" charity bazaar organized by the International Association of Diplomats in Madrid, Spain.
The Queen wanted to buy several Azerbaijani souvenirs, but the country`s delegates refused to take money and gave them to her as a keepsake.
Although under a protocol the Queen never touches souvenirs exhibited at the fair, at the Azerbaijani booth she was so much impressed that she took several items to view.
Queen Sofia was on hand to open the bazaar where representatives from dozens of diplomatic missions in Madrid gather each year to present samples of their cultural identities through crafts, gastronomy and folklore and then donate the proceeds to charity.
