Turkmenistan is expected to participate in the Karabakh Business Forum to be held in Azerbaijani city of Shusha on September 16.
"The Karabakh Business Forum will be held in Shusha on September 16. It will be attended by businesspeople from member and observer countries of the Organization of Turkic States," the Turkic Chamber of Commerce and Industry announced on Wednesday.
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.
President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has declared Shusha as the cultural capital of Azerbaijan. The International Organization of Turkic Culture (TURKSOY) in March this year has declared Shusha as the cultural capital of the Turkic World for 2023.
