Azerbaijan-Turkmenistan Caspian Oil Deal: Potential for Greater Regional Partnership

On January 21, 2021 Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan signed a long-discussed and major agreement. When fully realized it will lead to the joint exploration of a major but long-contested oil field in the Caspian Sea. The agreement itself, and the opening of the "Friendship" oil deposits, are likely to have profound significance not only for the two countries but for the Caucasus and Central Asia as a whole and, equally, for the major powers.

Our distinguished guest speakers discussed this agreement, the regional collaboration that gave rise to it, and its meaning for the region and for the world.

Moderator: 

S. Frederick Starr, Chairman, Central Asia-Caucasus Institute.

Speakers:

Amb. Meret Orazov, Ambassador of Turkmenistan to the United States

Amb. Elin Suleymanov, Ambassador of Azerbaijan to the United States

Ambassador Matthew Bryza, Senior Fellow, Atlantic Council 

When: Tuesday, February 9, 2021 at 11:00-12:00 PM EST

The event was livestreamed on the CACI Facebook page and is now available on Youtube.
