Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu drew attention to the fact that Asia and Europe are a huge trading platform and that the countries should be at the center of this commercial flow.

“The middle corridor and transit routes through the Caspian Sea are distinguished by economic efficiency and security”, the Foreign Minister of Türkiye noted. – The restoration of the ancient and extremely important trade line – the Great Silk Road will further unite the Turkic world.

At the meeting, proposals and initiatives were developed to enhance mutually beneficial cooperation in various directions.
