Azerbaijan and the Central Asian countries will have new opportunities for cooperation in the sphere of security from 2015, Arastu Habibbayli, the head of one of the sectors the International Relations Department of Azerbaijani Presidential Administration told reporters on Oct.8.
He said the withdrawal of the coalition forces from Afghanistan will impose new obligations on Azerbaijan and Central Asian countries and open new opportunities for cooperation.

Talking about Azerbaijan's relations with Central Asian countries, he said Kazakhstan has already constructed a large grain terminal in Azerbaijan, while the latter has opened a logistics center in Kazakhstan.
