Azerbaijan and Belarus have a strong tradition of supporting various art fields, which further enhances their cultural partnership.

The exchange of cultural experiences fosters mutual understanding and appreciation between the people of Azerbaijan and Belarus.

Both countries successfully collaborate in the field of culture, carrying out joint projects and initiatives.

Through events like the Belarusian Cultural Days in Azerbaijan, the two countries can learn from each other's traditions and build lasting cultural cooperation.

Numerous cultural and public figures attended the opening ceremony of the Belarusian Cultural Days held at the Heydar Aliyev Palace, Azernews reports.

Azerbaijan Culture Minister Adil Karimli welcomed the guests of the event.

"This event is a wonderful proof of friendship and cultural exchange between Azerbaijan and Belarus. Our gathering here today is not just symbolic. This is a manifestation of deep respect for the National Leader, Heydar Aliyev, who played a key role in establishing relations between our countries and developed strong traditional cooperation and mutual support relations thanks to his great work. Recently, important decisions have been made for the development of cultural relations between the two countries. This was facilitated by the discussions during the regular visits of the presidents of Azerbaijan and Belarus. We have great potential for the development of cultural cooperation," said the minister.

Adil Karimli stressed the importance of the Belarusian Cultural Days and other joint projects as they allow the two peoples to become more familiar with each other's rich heritage.

It is commendable that the field of culture has such a serious impact on the strengthening of friendship between our peoples. Another proof of this is the engraving of the star of the famous Azerbaijani singer and composer Polad Bulbuloglu on the Alley of Stars in the Slavic Bazaar in Vitebsk," said Anatoly Markevich.

The Belarusian minister noted that it is always nice to see talented and brilliant Azerbaijani artists performing in Belarus on all stages of the country.
