Georgian Foreign Minister, Tamar Beruchashvili, will visit Turkey next week to meet her Azerbaijani and Turkish counterparts for a trilateral meeting.
The fourth trilateral meeting of the foreign ministers will be held in eastern Turkish city of Kars on December 10.
“Within the framework of the meeting, the Ministers will exchange views on the prospects for developing regional cooperation on issues of common interest and review the decisions taken at the previous meetings,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on December 5.
The first such trilateral meeting between foreign ministers of the three countries was held in Trabzon on Turkey’s Black Sea coast in June, 2012, and the most recent meeting took place in Azerbaijani city of Ganja in February, 2014.
“The Trilateral Meeting of Foreign Ministers, where bilateral and regional issues are evaluated in a comprehensive way, contributes to the development of common understanding in all areas on the basis of mutual interest, and to the consolidation of regional stability and security,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said.
The first trilateral summit of Azerbaijani, Georgian and Turkish presidents was held in Tbilisi in May, 2014, which was then also followed by a meeting of defense ministers of the three countries in Nakhchivan in August.
A day before the trilateral meeting, Georgian Foreign Minister Tamar Beruchashvili will hold talks with her Turkish counterpart Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu on December 9.
“During the meetings, the Ministers will discuss the prospects for furthering bilateral relations and strategic cooperation between Turkey and Georgia in all fields and will exchange views on the regional and international developments,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Friday. “The visit will contribute to the excellent relations already existing between Turkey and Georgia.”
