Azerbaijan is concerned about the growing tendency toward intolerance and discrimination, as well as the horrific displays of Islamophobia and incitement to hatred, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov said at the fifth meeting of the UN Human Rights Council's 54th session, AzVision.az reports.
Bayramov stated that preventing discrimination is essential to ensuring the protection of human rights.
"Azerbaijan is fully committed to protecting the fundamental principles of human rights," the minister noted.
He added that the full implementation of human rights is important for sustainable peace, development, and the well-being of people.
Bayramov left for an official visit to Geneva on September 11, 2023.
