The Organization of Turkic States’ Role in a Changing World

The Organization of Turkic States’ Role in a Changing World

The Organization of Turkic States is an international organization that has emerged as an increasingly influential platform for connecting Turkic-speaking countries, as well as fostering comprehensive cooperation between these countries and the world. This institution is made up of five member states: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Türkiye, and Uzbekistan, with Hungary and Turkmenistan having observer status. Previously called the Turkic Council, the organization underwent a significant transformation in the last few years following the 8th Summit in Istanbul, in which it was renamed the Organization of Turkic States. The organization has been influential in working closely to develop connectivity, harmonization of trade, and has done so in different multilateral formats. Furthermore, the organization has been involved in recent talks about security collaboration.

We invite you to join the Caspian Policy Center for a discussion with Ambassador Baghdad Amreyev, Secretary General for the Organization of Turkic States on the role of the organization in a rapidly changing world, especially as traditional power brokers face new obstacles. CPC is delighted to host Ambassador Amreyev to this discussion and we are eager to foster closer relations between our organizations, as we both share the vision of just how important this region is on a global scale.
