The stability in the Caucasus and Caspian region is key for the world stability, World Stability Observatory head Luis Manuel Fraga, who is attending the Second Baku International Humanitarian Forum, told Trend on Thursday.
"Sooner or later we will be able to organize international conference on stability in the Caucasus and Caspian region issues. The stability in these regions is key for the world stability," he said.
He said it is not first time he is in Azerbaijan. "Every year I come and see that the country is progressing. The poverty has significantly reduced during the past 20 years," Fraga said.
