Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 14 / Trend V.Zhavoronkova /
The Azerbaijani and Kazakh centers for strategic research agreed to establish an expert council to discuss bilateral cooperation this week.
The council will meet once per year in Almaty or Baku. Representatives will develop proposals on issues such as combating terrorism and drug trafficking, Director of the Kazakh Center for Strategic Research (CSR) Bulat Sultanov told journalists during his visit to Baku today.
The experts first met two years ago in Almaty. The second meeting was held recently during Sultanov's continuing visit to Baku. The third meeting will take place in the spring or autumn of 2011 in Almaty. The expert council will be divided into three thematic groups, each of which will discuss military and technical, economic, and environmental and humanitarian issues.
According to Sultanov, "the motto of the Kazakh CSR is to anticipate and prevent, and assist to the government". The joint council of experts can work on the same principle, he said.
Sultanov is on visit to Baku at the invitation of the Azerbaijani CSR.
