    BAKU (Sputnik) – The leaders of Russia, Azerbaijan and Iran have adopted a joint declaration following a trilateral summit in the Azeri capital, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported on Monday.

    A draft declaration obtained by Sputnik earlier highlighted the need to jointly fight terrorism, as well as boost business, energy, transportation and other ties through establishing respective working groups.

    Moscow views the first of its kind trilateral summit as essential in light of the similar economic, security and counterterrorism issues the three countries face, according to Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov.

    Iranian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Mohsen Pak-Ayin told RIA Novosti in an interview earlier in the day the summit could become an annual event.
