Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend I.Alizade / The Government of Azerbaijan will consider the issue of liquidating the visa regime with Turkey. An official decision will be made by the end of 2007, said the Deputy Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan, Vagif Sadigov.
"A working group will be working on this issue. It is possible to say that the issue of liquidating the visa regime with Turkey will be resolved positively," he said.
Turkey annulled visa regime with Azerbaijan and other Turkic countries from 1 August 2007.
