Azerbaijan's appeal to include the national dish “dolma” in the list of recipes was welcomed at the meeting of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage, which is taking place on Jeju Island, South Korea, from 4 to 9 December. The Azerbaijani dolma has been included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List, Caspian Energy News (www.caspianenergy.net) reports with reference to UNESCO's post on Twitter.

“The Azerbaijan dolma has been included in the list following the two years of painstaking work”, Head of the Permanent Delegation to UNESCO Anar Kerimov wrote on his Twitter page.
