State Adviser on Multinational, Multicultural and Religious Affairs of Azerbaijan Kamal Abdulla, who is on a visit to Georgia, has delivered a lecture entitled “Azerbaijani multiculturalism” at Tbilisi State University named after I.Javakhishvili.
Opening the event, Chairman of International Society of Psycholinguistics, professor at TSU David Gocholidze said that the subject “Azerbaijani multiculturalism” will be taught at the university from this term.
“Teaching of this subject at TSU was decided at the conference on multiculturalism in Baku. The Georgian students being familiar with the subject will visit Baku and learn Azerbaijan's practice in this field,” he noted.
Abdulla spoke about the development of multiculturalism in Azerbaijan, peaceful living of ethnic minorities in the country, free activity of various confessions and the support of the government in this regard, mentioning that Islamophobia and religious conflicts taking place in some countries and Armenia deliberately created a mono-ethnic state.
“In modern times, such measures affect the South Caucasus. Teaching of the subject “Azerbaijani multiculturalism” will promote the raise of either Azerbaijani or Georgian youth in a healthy environment and provide the basis for transparent development of the relations between Azerbaijan and Georgia,” the state adviser underlined.
Later on, K. Abdulla answered students' questions.
