Tolerance it’s not just an idea, it’s a reality in Azerbaijan, ambassador of Germany to Azerbaijan Herbert Quelle said Monday during the meeting with Director General and staff members of the Azerbaijan State Telegraph Agency (AzerTAc).
Director General of AzerTAc Aslan Aslanov briefed the guests on the history of AzerTAc. Dwelling on the development process under the leadership of the President Ilham Aliyev, Aslan Aslanov said over the last year Azerbaijan has boosted its international image by taking leadership positions in regional and international forums.
Speaking about the development of Azerbaijan-Germany relations in all areas, Aslan Aslanov emphasized that AzerTAc successfully cooperates with Germany’s DPA both as part of EANA and in bilateral format. According to Aslan Aslanov, recently AzerTAc also started cooperation with another German news agency - DAPD.
The Director General of AzerTAc also spoke about anti-Azerbaijani campaign conducted by several forces and aimed at discrediting Azerbaijan’s image abroad. “Unfortunately Federal Government Commissioner for Human Rights Policy and Humanitarian Aid Markus Löning has also been involved in this campaign. However we are sure that this campaign will not be able to affect stable cooperation between Azerbaijan and Germany,” Aslanov said.
Herbert Quelle, in turn, said Azerbaijan can be proud of its model of tolerance. He said, both Azerbaijan and Germany have good potential for boosting cooperation even more./AzerTAc/
