"We consider the visit of ICESCO Delegation to Azerbaijani territories, liberated from occupation a significant and historical visit," said Minister of Culture Anar Karimov at the press conference in the ADA University, ONA reports.
Minister noted that the visit serves for strengthening relations between Azerbaijan and the ICESCO much more: "It also serves for the presentation of the actions, committed by Armenians in liberated territories from occupation to the international arena. Armenia's aggression against Azerbaijan, destruction of our historical-cultural monuments have always been in the focus of attention of the ICESCO."
The minister noted that the most important, ICESCO showed it stood by Azerbaijan during 44 days Patriotic War too: “Neither the government of Azerbaijan nor Azerbaijani people will forget this kindness.”
“The delegation saw destructions there with their eyes, during the visit to liberated regions from the occupation. They once again witnessed that along with ethnic cleansing against Azerbaijanis, Armenians also carried out cultural cleansing. These events once again show that it is a crime against humanity. We are sure that after seeing these facts ICESCO and its leadership will develop a report in this regard and present it to member states,” the minister noted.
