CMO chairman meets with delegation of Jewish community in Los Angeles

Baku: Chairman of the Caucasian Muslims Office Sheikh-ul-Islam Haji Allahshukur Pashazadeh met with a delegation of the Jewish community in Los Angeles.

Pashazadeh said that Azerbaijan is an example to the whole world in terms of inter-religious relations and tolerance.

He added that representatives of various religions co-exist in peace and stability in Azerbaijan.

“In Azerbaijan, relations between the state and religion are at a high level. After gaining the independence, Azerbaijan began to pay special attention to the religion, and mosques, synagogues and churches were rebuilt at the state expense. There has never been a discord between Muslims, Christians, Jews and other religions in Azerbaijan. It is the success achieved by the government,” he said.

Head of the delegation David Wolpe praised the state-religion relations in Azerbaijan, noting that the Jewish community is interested in establishing close ties with Azerbaijan.

“You said us before the event that it is hard to be your friend. You are expecting a lot from the friends and are ready to do a lot for them. We – the Jews are proposing to be your friend,” he said.

Pashazadeh in turn accepted the proposal.

Following the speeches of other participants, the sides presented gifts to each other.
