Therefore, it is great to see that new developments reflect this sentiment and a regional cooperation is being built. The meeting that took place on December 20, 2016 in Moscow between the foreign ministers of Russia, Turkey and Iran, which resulted in a joint declaration, marked the beginning of such cooperation.
