Slutsky proposes creating Russia-Azerbaijan-Iran parliamentary tripartite


Chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky has proposed creating a Russia-Azerbaijan-Iran parliamentary tripartite.

Slutsky voiced this proposal at a joint meeting with a delegation of the Iranian Parliament's Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy.

He noted that the presidents of the three countries are working on cooperation in the areas of railway line, electricity, and oil and gas in the north-south vertical.

"This format has been continuing for several years. I’m confident that we can have a think about a parliamentary tripartite with Azerbaijan’s participation," RIA Novosti cited the MP as saying.
