ASHKHABAD (Sputnik) — The declaration was signed by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow on Tuesday, while the text of the document was published in Turkmen newspapers earlier in the day.
"The parties note the importance of enhancing cooperation in the field of energy supplies aimed at the diversification of routes from the Caspian region to world and European markets," the declaration read.
The two states have long been working on organizing natural gas deliveries from the Caspian Sea region, including from Turkmenistan, to Europe. Turkey and the European Union supported the initiative.
Another discussion on the issue is expected to take place during a trilateral meeting between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Aliyev and Berdimuhamedow in late 2017.
