The deep relationship of friendship and cooperation binds Israel and Azerbaijan, wrote Giorgia Pilar Giorgi and Domenico Letizia in the article published by the Foreign policy news, Trend reports.
Giorgia Pilar Giorgi is an analyst and researcher in energy security issues and unresolved conflicts in South Caucasus. Domenico Letizia is the President of Associazione “Amici dell’Azerbaigian Centro Sud Italia”.
“Azerbaijan is known to be an example of peaceful coexistence between people of different nationalities and religions. The Azerbaijani government has always promoted coexistence between people from different religious groups and the freedom, also recognized at constitutional level, to profess their beliefs,” says the article.
As Muslim-majority country (approximately 96.9 percent), Azerbaijan has historically hosted one of the oldest Christian community and today it survives peacefully alongside a prolific Jewish community, noted the authors.
Azerbaijan has over time become synonymous with acceptance and tolerance, mutual respect between people who embrace different faiths, according to the article.
This peaceful attitude is revealed by the profitable relationship that binds the country to Israel, says the article.
