Turkmen-Azerbaijani-Turkish summit expected soon

By Dzhumaguly Annayev

ANKARA -- A summit involving the leaders of Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Turkey is expected in a few months, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's Turkmen service reported Wednesday (January 4), quoting the Turkish Foreign Ministry.

The three presidents were planning to meet in Ashgabat in late 2016, but that summit never occurred.

"Given the backdrop of the latest terrorist attacks in Istanbul and other Turkish cities, the fight against extremism could become the main topic at the summit," Ashgabat political scientist Shirguly Ballyyev told Caravanserai.
