UNESCO intergovernmental committee prevents Armenia's provocation against Azerbaijan
The 13th session of the UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage has started in Port Louis, capital of Mauritius.
Information and Public Relations Department of the Ministry of Culture told Report that during the meeting, which lasted from November 26 to December 1, 2013, a five-year report was heard on Azerbaijan's "Chovqan - traditional Karabakh horse-riding game" which was included into UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage List in 2013.
The report featured the events in Azerbaijan on the development of the Chovqan horse-riding game traditions as well as the impossibility to implement game traditions as a result of the Armenian occupation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan.
At the meeting, the Armenian delegation remained loyal to their non-constructive tradition and spoke against Azerbaijan demanding not to return the report to Azerbaijan. The issue has been discussed extensively, and Armenia's attempt was foiled the same way it usually is. None of Armenia's proposals regarding the decision have been supported by the committee.
Under the leadership of Azerbaijani Deputy Foreign Minister Ramiz Hasanov the meeting is attended by a delegation of the country including permanent representative of the country in UNESCO Anar Kerimov, Special Envoy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Secretary General of the National Commission of Azerbaijan for UNESCO Elnur Sultanov and Deputy Head of the Ministry of Culture Vasif Eyvazzade and the second secretary of the National Commission of Azerbaijan for UNESCO Nahid Omarov.
