Baku hosts press conference ‘Lavash, common heritage of Turks”

Baku. Javid Zeynalli – APA. A press conference on the subject “Lavash, common heritage of Turks” was held in Baku on Dec.17.

The press conference took place as part of the project “Day of Lavash”, organized jointly by the ministries of culture and tourism of Azerbaijan and Turkey, and Yunus Emre Institute in Baku.

 

Ibrahim Yildirim, the representative of Yunus Emre Institute in Baku, said lavash will be promoted in buses in Baku within the one-month project.

 

Tahir Amiraslanov, director of the Azerbaijani National Culinary Center, said the project aims to draw public attention to the fact that Armenia is trying to appropriate lavash, the oldest sample of our national cuisine.

 

It was mentioned that though on November 26, lavash was presented by Armenia in the Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage to UNESCO as “Tradition of baking Armenian bread-lavash”, the Armenian provocation was prevented as a result of Azerbaijan’s objection and activities carried out in this regard. Thus, the name of the file was changed in accordance with the requirements of the UNESCO Convention revealing that lavash doesn’t belong to the Armenian nation, it only exists in Armenia too.
