Almaty, Kazakhstan’s biggest city, will be hosting the first summit of the Cooperation Council of Turkic Speaking States (CCTS) October 20-21, Interfax-Kazakhstan reports.

In Istanbul Kazakhstan’s Foreign Minister Erzhan Kazykhanov and CCTS Secretary General Halil Akıncı discussed prep work for the summit.

Besides, Minister Kazykhanov and PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey discussed preparations for the PM’s visit to Kazakhstan. The sides also dwelt on the current state and prospects of the bilateral relations.

The Cooperation Council of Turkic Speaking States (CCTS) was established in 2009 as an international intergovernmental organization, with the overarching aim of promoting comprehensive cooperation among Turkic Speaking States. Its four founding member States are Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey.

According to the two main CCTS documents, the Nakhcivan Agreement of 3 October 2009 and the Istanbul Declaration of 16 September 2010, member States of CCTS embrace the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter, along with other universally recognized principles of international law. Established norms related to the maintenance of peace, security and development of good-neighbourly relations lay the foundation for cooperation to be promoted under CCTS. The Council seeks to strengthen the unity of the people living in related cultures and languages.
