Baku, Azerbaijan, March 4
By Elmira Tariverdiyeva Trend:
Azerbaijan, Russia, Turkey and Kazakhstan can create an axis of stability and security in the region, the Executive Director at the Centre for Political Science North-South, Alexei Vlasov said during a roundtable meeting held in Baku on March 4.
Theme of the meeting was 'Geopolitics of the Caspian-Black Sea Region: security problems' organised by the North-South Centre for Political Analysis.
"The process of completing the forming of a state is underway in the former Soviet Union," he said.
Danger of destabilisation may threaten many post-Soviet countries for various reasons, Vlasov said. "For example, the presence of NATO bases in the former Soviet Union is a real destabilising factor."
