Reciting Quraan while azaan goes on

Q: I want to know the ruling regarding when reading Quraan and azaan goes, should one stop reading Quraan and continue after azaan or can one read whilst the azaan is going on.

A: It is better that you stop the recitation and answer the azaan.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
