The 7th “MollaNasreddin - Azerbaijan - 2016” International Cartoon Contest.
Azerbaijan, a country located on the Great Silk Road and a crosspoint of different civilizations, has been recognized as a place where national and cultural differences are observed, and representatives of different nations and religions coexist in an atmosphere of peace, friendship, tranquillity and mutual understanding. In our country multiculturalism has already become a lifestyle which has no other alternative. Today, establishment of Baku International Multiculturalism Centre is a good example of loyalty to the tolerance principles of the policy carried out in our country nowadays.
The Decision on organization of the 7th Global Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations in Baku in 2016 is a true evidence of the attitude of other countries in the world to the multicultural society of Azerbaijan.
