BAKU, July 15./TASS/. Ankara believes a format of trilateral cooperation involving Turkey, Azerbaijan and Russia could be established, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said at a news conference after talks with Azerbaijani counterpart Elmar Mamedyarov in Azerbaijan’s capital Baku on Friday.
"Implementation of major projects in the region, in particular a New Silk Road project, will enable Azerbaijan to become a transit center, a hub in the region. To implement these projects, Azerbaijan and Turkey intend to cooperate not only in a bilateral but also in a trilateral format with other countries," the diplomat said.
"In particular, we seek to form an Azerbaijan-Turkey-Kazakhstan trilateral format. We also believe an Azerbaijan-Turkey-Russia trilateral format is possible," the minister said, adding that these possibilities were being discussed.
