The presidents of Azerbaijan, Iran and Russia will meet in Baku on August 8 to discuss the International North–South Transport Corridor, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

“On August 8, 2016, we will meet for the first time at a summit of the three Heads of State in Baku, at the invitation of President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, to discuss the prospects for developing long-term and mutually beneficial cooperation that would span diverse areas: from economic and humanitarian ties to security and the fight against terrorism,” Putin told the Azerbaijani State News Agency AZERTAC in an interview.

“Our talks will focus on a flagship project – the International North–South Transport Corridor with a total length of 7,200 kilometers. It aims to provide the best possible opportunities for transporting transit cargo from India, Iran, and the Gulf States to Azerbaijan, the Russian Federation and further to Northern and Western Europe,” he said.

He also added that the three countries have opportunities for expanding cooperation in energy, tourism, healthcare and education spheres.
