The Spanish language edition of the influential U.S. newspaper Los Angeles Times, Hoy Los Angeles, has published an article by Editorial Director Alejandro Maciel highlighting the beauty of Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan.

Headlined “Baku: Jewel of the Caspian Sea”, the article shares the author’s impressions about Azerbaijan’s rapid development and transformation in recent years, and the stunning beauty of its capital city of Baku.

Maciel also notes that in Azerbaijan, people of different ethnic and religious backgrounds, including Muslims, Jews, Orthodox Christians and Catholics, have been living in peace and harmony for many centuries and continue to do so today. In this regard, he quotes Azerbaijan’s Consul General in Los Angeles Nasimi Aghayev as saying: "In Azerbaijan, it is more than tolerance, it is about respect. Tolerance means you tolerate something that bothers you. In our case it is about respecting the beliefs and traditions of others. And that has allowed us to live in peace."

In conclusion, Maciel invites his readers to visit and discover Azerbaijan.
