Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkey Sign Cooperation Plan


The foreign ministers of Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Turkey have signed a wide-ranging plan to expand cooperation between their departments.

Georgia's Maia Panjikidze, Azerbaijan's Elmar Mammadyarov, and Turkey's Ahmet Davutoglu held talks in the Georgian port city of Batumi on March 28.

At a joint press conference after the meeting, Panjikidze said the two-year cooperation plan would strengthen relations between the three countries.

Mammadyarov said their cooperation was "an example for the whole region." Davutoglu said the trilateral meeting was a "unique cooperation platform."

The first such trilateral foreign-ministerial meeting was held in Trabzon, Turkey, in June 2012.

The next one is expected to be held in Azerbaijan later this year.
