Bringing together so many leaders is a great step taken in the sphere of multiculturalism by building mutual understanding among people, said Barak.
Azerbaijan is developing year by year and everyone participating in this event praises the developments in this country, he added.
Israel’s former prime minister noted that Azerbaijan has open, strong and tolerant society.
One the one hand, Azerbaijan is an open country and on the other hand, it supports good, balanced relations with its neighbors, except for one, according to Barak.
It shows that regional countries should make great efforts to live in peace and cooperation with all neighbors, he added.
