Azerbaijan`s Minister of Agriculture visits France
Baku, February 26 (AZERTAC). Azerbaijan`s Minister of Agriculture Ismat Abasov has headed to France, to attend the 50th International Agricultural Fair in Paris.
As part of the trip, the Azerbaijani Minister will visit province of Lower Normandy and hold a number of meetings.
Mr. Abasov will also attend an event on Khojaly massacre organized by Azerbaijan`s Embassy in France, as well as the opening ceremony of an exhibition in the Chablis supported by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation within the project “Cultural Values of Azerbaijan – the Pearl of Caucasus”.
Billed as the largest farm show in France, the 50th International Agricultural Fair in Paris opened its doors to visitors on Saturday. Among the nearly 1,000 stalls showcasing the best of French produce and agricultural know-how, RFI found an osteopath…for animals.
At the Salon International de l`Agriculture, there is a tiny stall for the Professional Institute for Animal Mechanical Osteopathy. It is overshadowed by a much larger stand from a popular fast-food chain promoting its use of French beef in its burgers - a sensitive issue given the current horsemeat-for-beef scandal. A few curious onlookers approach osteopath Cyril Crausaz, the institute’s president.
