Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 30 /Trend S.Aghayeva/
The priority of Azerbaijan's chairmanship in the UN Security Council is to protect justice in the world, spokesman of Azerbaijan's Foreign Ministry Elman Abdullayev said at a briefing on Monday.
Azerbaijan has been chairing the UN Security Council from October 1.
Chairmanship of such an authoritative structure puts great challenges before the country and imposes responsibility.
Azerbaijan will make every effort to adequately fulfil all the tasks standing before the country as the chairman of the UN Security Council, Abdullayev added.
In order to develop cooperation between the UN and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Azerbaijan intends to organize a high-level meeting. Today Azerbaijan is one of the centres of tolerance in the world.
Azerbaijan, which has an important role in the Dialogue of Civilizations, successfully plays the role of a bridge and is recognized by the international community as a tolerant country, Abdullayev said.
This initiative of Azerbaijan in the UN Security Council is positively considered, Abdullayev said.
Azerbaijan's humanitarian activities in Africa, Latin America and Asia are highly appreciated by the international community. Azerbaijan aims to support the development and strengthening of countries in these regions, Abdullayev said.
