"During my visit to Ankara last week, I agreed with my brother Mr. Cavusoglu to hold a tripartite meeting of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Republic of Azerbaijan, and the Republic of Turkey at the level of foreign ministers in Tehran soon. Today, we will reach an agreement on the date of the meeting with my brother Mr. Jeyhun," the head of the Iranian Foreign Ministry said.

He noted that the discussion of electricity exchange was agreed upon between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan.

The Foreign Minister also brought to the attention that he had discussed with his Azerbaijani counterpart the environmental problems surrounding the Araz River: “One of the issues of concern to our border provinces is the pollution of the border river and ecological problems arising in the Araz river. River pollution was discussed in the specialized field of environment. We hope that we can take effective measures in this direction as well."
