Iran, Turkey, and Central Asia: Shaping Regional Cooperation

Central Asia and Caucasus Seminar
Event Format

Since the early 1990s, Iran and Turkey have actively engaged in Central Asia, drawing on different sets of cultural, religious, and linguistic affinities. The bilateral relations between the two regional powers and five Central Asian states had ups and downs. At present, we are witnessing a significant intensification of cooperation across the board, ranging from security dialogues and military sales to trade and developing transport corridors. The panel will discuss the drivers, circumstances, and implications of the growing cooperation between Iran, Turkey, and Central Asian states.

The seminar is open to the public. Please join webinar or watch it live on Youtube.
