Turkey's PM meets Aliyev in Baku

Turkey's prime minister said on Wednesday that Turkey-Azerbaijan High-Level Strategic Council would hold its first meeting in Turkey.

Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan held a two-hour tete-a-tete meeting with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Erdogan and Aliyev then presided meetings between delegations.

The two discussed bilateral relations, particularly military, commercial, economic, social and cultural issues, as well as regional problems.

"We had the opportunity to discuss what kind of steps we can take in the future," Erdogan said.

Erdogan underlined importance of high-level strategic council, and said he was looking forward to holding the first meeting of the council.

This is Erdogan's second abroad visit following the June 12th general elections. Erdogan paid his first abroad visit to Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) after his re-election.

Also speaking in the meetings, Aliyev congratulated Erdogan on his election success, and said his visit indicated the importance Erdogan attached to relations with Azerbaijan.

Aliyev said they debated daily issues, and two countries had similar views on those issues.
