Here in Azerbaijan, the representatives of all religions and nationalities live as a family, in an atmosphere of peace, friendship, tranquility and mutual understanding. This is Azerbaijan's great heritage, a great advantage.
Today, the country is a model for many countries in the world for peaceful coexistence of members of different nations and religions.
Azerbaijan, a multinational state with about 98 percent of the Azerbaijani population being Muslim, has never had any problems and religious conflicts.
