Guluzade said that the sides are expected to cooperate in the fields of satellite communication, cybersecurity, the development of telecommunications infrastructure, and other fields of mutual interest, Trend reported.
“The goal of our meeting is to create good conditions for the development of ICT in our countries,” the minister said. “We have recently discussed this issue with colleagues from Russia, Iran, and Turkey. We decided to create a consortium consisting of four countries to develop this sphere together. We should more often hold discussions on these topics as this may rapidly resolve the emerging issues.
“This is the first meeting,” he said, adding, “to establish close ties, the Azerbaijani side proposed to create a working group with the participation of representatives of the abovementioned structures of all the participating countries.”
Iranian Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mohammad Javad Azari Jahrami arrived at Baku last night to attend the event and hold talks with his counterparts from different regional countries.
