Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 14 / Trend, E. Mehdiyev /
The issue of creating a youth association of Turkic states is being discussed for a long time, Milli Majlis (Azerbaijani Parliament) deputy Fuad Muradov told Trend on Thursday.
"Even when Turk PA was created, it was planned to organize an association of youth organizations of Turkic states within its structure. No decisions have been made on this issue so far, but work is being conducted on the matter," Muradov said.
Creating an association of youth organizations of Turkic-speaking countries is among important issues, since gathering of young people together to hold discussions is useful, Muradov said.
"I approve this idea and we will support this initiative," he stressed.
MP Jeyhun Osmanli also finds creation of such an organization useful.
"As is known, a World Union of the Turkic Youth was created earlier, but, of course, the creation of a youth association of Turkic-speaking states would be more fruitful. For example, it would be more interesting if Turk PA had a youth platform, it would promote cooperation between the young people of these countries. That is, the presence of such an organization would be positive both at the parliamentary and intergovernmental levels, "Osmanli told Trend on Thursday.
