“Azerbaijan has always been loyal to the traditions of multiculturalism and tolerance and the main purpose of the second Imagine Euro Tolerance Festival is to develop these shared values of our common humanity,” head of the European Union Delegation to Azerbaijan, Ambassador Kestutis Jankauskas has told journalists.
He noted that the European Union welcomes the promotion of these traditions by Azerbaijan.
“Alongside with the EU member states, a number of non-member countries have also joined this year’s Imagine festival. Various exhibitions and films will be demonstrated by these countries during the festival. The event will also feature 38 films representing 30 countries, which is more than last year,” the EU envoy said.
Recalling that this year marks 10th anniversary of the European Union Delegation to Azerbaijan, the EU ambassador said that a magnificent concert program entitled “Europe Day” will be organized on May 7 in this regard.
“This year’s festival is not going to be significantly different from the previous one, however, there will be more attendants and films this year. Last year’s festival was a great success,” Jankauskas added.
