An international conference titled “Trilateral cooperation: new prospects and challenges” has been held in Tbilisi bringing together delegations from Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey.

Addressing the event, president of the Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies Alexander Rondel stressed the necessity of strengthening cooperation due to ongoing processes in the region. “Today, with the participation of Azerbaijani, Georgian and Turkish representatives the conference will discuss issues for regional peace. We will exchange views over new challenges for developing peace and cooperation. We will also look through new projects on security and strategic cooperation,” he noted.
Speaking to the conference, Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Gigi Gigiadze said his country attached huge importance to the development of regional cooperation.
