Mr. President İlham Aliyev said that multiculturalism is both a lifestyle and a state policy in Azerbaijan.

Heydar Aliyev is the great son of the Azerbaijani people and has served the people with dignity during the period of the Soviet Union and the İndependence period. Heydar Aliyev laid the foundations of state-religion relations, as in all other areas. We link the concept of development of modern Azerbaijan with his name."
