MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. Moscow will propose to step up information exchange about international terrorist organizations at the Russia-Azerbaijan-Iran summit, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov told reporters on Friday.
He noted that the results of the discussion in Baku will be reflected in the final declaration which is being coordinated by the foreign ministers and will be adopted at the summit.
"We, in particular, propose to step up information exchange between the three countries about international terrorist organizations. This would help effectively counter trafficking militants, weapons and drugs through the territories of our countries," Ushakov said.
The presidential aide reminded that the upcoming meeting in Baku is the first trilateral summit. The idea to hold it was put forward by Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev, Ushakov said adding that this format is very relevant now. "The three countries are neighbors, they face similar problems, including global economic crisis, the situation on our borders, in particular on borders with Afghanistan and in general in the Middle East, issues of fighting against terrorism," the aide said stressing that the leaders of the three countries will have a lot to talk about. They will have an opportunity to agree on closer trilateral cooperation, he added.
One of the main aims of the summit in the new format is considering opportunities on promoting promising infrastructure projects, first of all in the sphere of transport, Ushakov concluded.
