Azerbaijan, Baku, July 1 / Trend , A.Huseynbala/
The Azerbaijani government has received an offer to place the General Secretariat of the Parliamentary Assembly of Turkic states in Baku.
"This issue should be discussed amongst the presidents of the Turkic states. I think that as a result of discussions, our desire will come true," Co-Chair of the working group of the Azerbaijani-Turkish inter-parliamentary group Nizami Jafarov told Trend on July 1.
In 2008, in the Istanbul conference, the heads of parliaments of Turkic-speaking countries reached an agreement to establish the Parliamentary Assembly of Turkic-speaking countries, which includes Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey.
Jafarov said Turkmenistan's and Uzbekistan's participation in the summit of the assembly which will be held in Baku in September has not yet decided. "Discussions are held for these two countries' participation in the assembly," the Azerbaijani parliamentarian said.
The Baku summit will discuss new projects in order to make the assembly a permanent organization, the co-chair of the working group said.
"There will be discussions to turn the assembly into an organization with a permanent secretariat as the PACE," Jafarov said.
