“The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has positively responded to the Western Azerbaijan Community's appeal," the Community told AZERTAC.
“The Western Azerbaijan Community, in the framework of substantive dialogue with UNESCO, presented specific topics to the leadership of the organization and in accordance with international conventions recognizing the relevant role of communities in the field of cultural heritage preservation, asked UNESCO to provide practical assistance in capacity building.

The Community will continue practical cooperation with UNESCO to increase its capacity to preserve Azerbaijan's cultural heritage in Armenia, including maintaining register of cultural monuments based on modern methodology, assessing their condition and determining the necessary steps for restoration,” the Community said.
