ECO-IEST: President of Afghanistan Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani are to visit Azerbaijan this year.

According to Afghanistan's Ambassador to Azerbaijan Mohammad Tagi Khalili, they will take part in the ministerial conference of the Heart of Asia – Istanbul Process.

The envoy added that the conference is likely to take place in the second half of 2017 but the date is yet to be confirmed.

Baku has already hosted a meeting of senior officials of the Heart of Asia – Istanbul process member states on March 17.

Azerbaijan assumed the co-chairmanship of the Heart of Asia – Istanbul process for 2017 in early December 2016.

The Heart of Asia Conference is an intergovernmental organization founded in November 2011 by Istanbul, Turkey. The aim is to provide a platform to discuss regional issues, particularly encouraging security, political, and economic cooperation among Afghanistan and its neighbors.

This region-led dialogue was launched to expand practical coordination between Afghanistan and its neighbors and regional partners in facing common threats, including counterterrorism, counternarcotics, poverty, and extremism.
