The summit of the Organization of Turkic States will be held in Uzbekistan’s southeastern city of Samarkand in November this year.
An exchange of views on the upcoming summit of the Organization of Turkic States in Samarkand took place between the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev and President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a telephone conversation on Tuesday, according to the Press Service of the President of Uzbekistan.
The Organization of Turkic States, formerly called the Cooperation Council of Turkic Speaking States (Turkic Council), was established on October 3, 2009 by the Nakhchivan Agreement signed between Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey. In 2018, Uzbekistan became the member of the organization and Hungary joined it as an observer state.
In November last year, Turkmenistan joined to the Organization of Turkic States as an observer state.
