Baku, Azerbaijan, July 13
Since arriving in Azerbaijan, I have learned about many things Azerbaijan can offer to the world. One such thing is the example of tolerance and the history of people of different religions living together and respecting each other, the US ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Cekuta told during iftar ceremony on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan at his residency.
He also mentioned that today 2.6 million Muslims live in the United States. US value friendship with the countries of the Muslim world and wish to expand these ties.
"The Quran teaches love and compassion for every human being, regardless of his or her religion. Only by practicing these very qualities can we truly move forward together and overcome adversity in a turbulent world", - Cekuta said.
