Along with Muslim monuments in the liberated territories from the occupation, Christian heritage regardless of their origin will also be protected at a high level, will be restored, and will be put into operation, the Ministry of Culture told APA.
It has been noted that all the nations and the representatives of religions are living together side by side, build for centuries in Azerbaijan which is a multicultural and multireligious country.
The large Christian community in our country is an integral and active part of our society, and their monuments and places of worship, churches are fully protected and regularly restored by the Azerbaijani state. It is not a coincidence that Pope Francis assessed Azerbaijan as a model country around the world for religious tolerance during his visit to Azerbaijan in October 2016.
Valuing of material and cultural heritage, restoration, and reconstruction of our historical and religious monuments, including churches and synagogues, is a part of the policy implemented by the Azerbaijani state in this area.
