    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held talks with his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev on the bilateral strategic partnership, as well as the international cooperation, the Azerbaijani leader’s press service said in a statement.

    BAKU (Sputnik) — The sides also underscored the importance of the 7th Global Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC), which is currently being held in the Azerbaijani capital, in promoting international cooperation between world powers.

    "President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has met with President of the Republic of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is on a working visit in the country… The presidents also exchanged views on bilateral relations and other issues of mutual interest," the statement published Monday reads.

    The UNAOC was established in 2005 as the political initiative of former UN Secretary-General and co-sponsored by Spain and Turkey. The organization aims to reduce polarization at local and global levels, as well as to boost understanding and cooperation among nations and different cultures.
