  • RFE/RL's Georgian Service

The foreign Ministers of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey are meeting in the eastern Turkish city of Kars on December 10.

It is the fourth trilateral meeting of foreign ministers of the three neighbors since the launch of this format in 2012.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry said last week that the trilateral meetings "contribute to the development of common understanding in all areas on the basis of mutual interest, and to the consolidation of regional stability and security."

Georgian Foreign Minister Tamar Beruchashvili arrived in Ankara on December 9 and discussed bilateral ties with her Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu.

Their Azerbaijani counterpart, Elmar Mammadyarov, will join them in Kars later on December 10.

Neighboring Armenia, whose ties with Azerbaijan and Turkey are severely strained, is not part of the group.
