By Anvar Mammadov – Trend:
The next trilateral business forum of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey may be held in Nakhchivan, said Azerbaijani Economy Minister Shahin Mustafayev.
This step can attract Iran to this format, leading to future quadrilateral business forums, Mustafayev said in Baku Feb. 25 at a press conference dedicated to the results of an Azerbaijani delegation’s visit to Iran.
“We recently held the 5th business forum in a trilateral format between Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey. The next similar forum will be held in Azerbaijan and we want to hold it in the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic. We want to attract Iran to this event as well and we are working in this direction,” Mustafayev said.
The 5th Turkey-Azerbaijan-Georgia business forum was held in Istanbul Feb. 17.
The minister added that work is also underway to create a trilateral cooperation format between Azerbaijan, Turkey and Iran.
