Azerbaijan – The Land of Peace exhibition, Brussels

This remarkable free exhibition of 100 photographs, showcasing Azerbaijan’s traditions, life, culture and history, opened on 11 February at the European Parliament. The opening networking cocktail was organised by TEAS Belgium, in collaboration with Niki Tzavela MEP (EFD, Greece). The selection of images provided an invaluable overview of everyday life in this western-facing, cosmopolitan, secular country, which is renowned for its religious tolerance.

The opening was attended by over 400 MEPs, European Council members, diplomats, European Parliament researchers and journalists, including Fiorello Provera MEP (EFD, Italy), H.E. Fuad Isgandarov, Head of the Azerbaijani Mission to the EU, Dr Asim Mollazade, Azerbaijani MP and Chairman, Democratic Reforms Party and Ambassador Arif Mammadov, Head of EU Mission to the Organisation of Islamic Co-operation (OIC).
