Putin, Aliyev and Rouhani to meet in Iran

Russian President Vladimir Putin will travel to Iran before the end of this year, where a trilateral Russia-Iran-Azerbaijan meeting will be held, Presidential Aide Yuri Ushakov said.

"Actually, it is," he said when asked whether Putin’s visit to Iran is planned. "That will be a trilateral Iran-Russia-Azerbaijan meeting," TASS cited Ushakov as saying.

The first trilateral summit was held in Baku in August 2016. At that time, Vladimir Putin, Ilham Aliyev and Hassan Rouhani discussed joined economic projects and regional security issues, in particular, the North-South Transport Corridor project.
