    Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev has suggested establishing a free trade zone involving Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan; all bordering the Caspian Sea and oil-rich.

    Nazarbayev suggested the idea at the fourth Caspian Summit, where leaders from the five countries have gathered in Astrakhan, Russia, on Monday.

    “Taking into consideration the situation on the world market, we could investigate the possibility of bringing the economies of our countries closer to involve mutual trade. Before regulating the legal status of the Caspian [Sea] we may lay down the foundations for mutual economic activities. I suggest looking into the suggestion of creating a Caspian free trade zone,” Nazarbayev said, as quoted by RIA Novosti.

    This project "could become one of the first discussions at the government level," Nazarbayev said, adding that the meetings between the heads of state should at least plan to convene once every two years, and also suggested that the 2016 Caspian Summit be held in Kazakhstan.

    Turkmenistan’s President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov also proposed the creation of a permanent Caspian Economic Forum to hold its meetings alternately in the coastal cities of the Caspian states.

    Earlier at Monday’s talks, the five countries signed a joint statement outlining future prospects for regional cooperation.

    Russia, Azerbaijan, and Iran are all oil-rich countries, Kazakhstan also has substantial oil reserves and is the world's biggest producer of uranium. Turkmenistan is one of the fastest growing economies in the world that also has sizable oil and gas resources.

    With your current pace, you won't get to live long on this forum, so if you want to stay a little more, stop being a troll.

    No wonder India is in this shape now, if all of her politicians are like you and Modi :lol:
    You seriously need to take an IQ test. No offense intended.
    Yeah, that's why you thought that 1979 is related to Azerbaijan, while it is the year of revolution of Iran and not related to us.
    Anyway, inferiority complex was also obvious from your reply to Azeri440's post.

    i am forced to call you an idiot... what is my connection to modi or his party?? i am socialist... go tell what you said there to the indian members, especially to indrani.

    i don't care about this "iq" business... but you must be really high on "iq" because your posts are often so silly... it is people like you who use some silly numbers on some silly "iq" scale to congratulate each other while in reality contribute nothing to humanity... yes, be happy with your 253 iq level... silly people.

    you don't make sense at all. go back to where your azeri friend jumped in.

    me?? jamahir?? inferiority complex?? :rofl: :rofl: ten times :rofl:

    and why would you ever say that to the most extreme socialist on this forum?? have you never seen my posts??
