Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 19 / Trend M. Aliyev /
Tolerance in Azerbaijan is based on its historical roots, chairman of the Azerbaijani State Committee for Work with Religious Organisations Elshad Iskandarov said at a forum entitled 'State and Religion: increased tolerance in a changing world', today.
"Azerbaijan is an ideal place for such events as the country respects people of other religions," he said.
Azerbaijan is the only country that promotes inter-religious and inter-cultural development. Multiculturalism originates from the mentality of the Azerbaijani people, he added.
