Meeting of permanent members of the Security Council has been held under the leadership of Russian President Vladimir Putin, APA reports citing Kreml’s press conference.

Vladimir Putin delivering a speech in the meeting held in a video conference format said the situation in the Caspian region will be discussed: “Today, we will discuss a very important issue- an issue about the situation in the Caspian region with you. It seems to me that there is no need to say that how this issue is important for Russia. It includes issues regarding the economic activity, as well as cooperation with our close partners and allies. Surely, Russia's interests in the Caspian region in general and security issues can also be included here. You well know that how many great projects we have in the field of energy.

Not only to complete existing projects, but also our government have plans to expand activity of our big companies, to expandactivities of our economic operators. Of course, we are aware that Iran is one of our neighbors in the Caspian Five. Currently many issues on nuclear problem of Iran are being solved, I hope that everything about Joint Comprehensive Agreement Plan will be restored in the previous framework. We will be able to establish full-fledged relations with all members of the Caspian Club, including the Caspian region, and fully implement all our plans.
