He also emphasized the importance of strengthening the fight against Islamophobia, religious radicalism and extremism, as well as treating national and spiritual, religious and multicultural values with respect.
In his remarks, Member of the UNA Executive Council, AZERTAC Chairman of Board Aslan Aslanov focused on the importance of international events and forums organized in Azerbaijan on the initiative and with the support of President Ilham Aliyev and First Vice-President Mehriban Aliyeva aimed at promoting Azerbaijan's exemplary model of tolerance and its values of peaceful coexistence worldwide.
AZERTAC Chairman of Board Aslan Aslanov said that although traditional events had been postponed due to the pandemic, people are holding online meetings and forums to share their views and experiences. “The global crisis has not weakened the mutual solidarity and friendship between people, but rather shifted focus from traditional form of expression to the virtual world.
