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 Embassy of Azerbaijan in Latvia has handed a note to Latvia due to the mistakes regarding the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan in the textbook titled 'The geography of the New World'," advisor of the Embassy Geray Muradov told APA.
In this textbook, Nagorno-Karabakh, just like South Ossetia and Abkhazia, is presented as an independent republic.
Muradov expressed concern over this fact and added that an inquiry has shown that this textbook is not used at secondary schools.
In this light, the Latvian Foreign Ministry has appeared with a statement saying that "the mistakes made in the geographical map don't reflect the official position of Latvia and that Riga supports the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan."
