Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.

The known Azerbaijani writer, the author of the smash novel "Stone dreams", Akram Aylisli, is going to take Azerbaijani mass media to court.
To note, yesterday Azerbaijani mass media informed about Aylisli's death. His novel "Stone dreams", telling about the Baku massacre of the Armenians and published in the Russian magazine "Druzhba narodov" caused a lot of noise and hysteria in Azerbaijan. On February 7, 2013, the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev signed a presidential decree that stripped Aylisli of the title of "People's Writer" and the presidential pension.
"I am going to punish all those who disseminated such disinformation and take them to court. I did not die, I am alive", - the 77 year old writer said when replying Azerbaijani journalists' calls.
