“Azerbaijan announced 2017 as the Year of Islamic Solidarity. Azerbaijan hosts Islamic Solidarity Games. All Muslim countries of the world attend that event. This year Azerbaijan will host a number of forums dedicated to development and improvement of multiculturalism and tolerance in the world,” said Azerbaijani Ambassador in Kazakhstan Rashad Mammadov.
