Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoglu will pay an official visit to Azerbaijan on Feb. 18-19 to attend the ninth meeting of the trilateral mechanism between Turkey, Azerbaijan and Georgia, the country's foreign ministry statement said Wednesday.
The meeting will be held between Çavuşoglu and his Azerbaijani and Georgian counterparts, Jeyhun Bayramov and David Zalkaliani. The three ministers will discuss bilateral and trilateral relations as well as regional issues to enhance strategic cooperation. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev will also receive Çavuşoglu, the source added.
It is reminded that the three countries are a part of the trilateral mechanism that was initiated by the Trabzon declaration on June 8, 2012. Since that date, military chiefs and the foreign ministers of the three countries have been organizing regular meetings. The framework provides fertile ground for discussions on the consolidations of regional stability and security.
