Stressing that the trade volume in the ECO region is around $100 billion, Cavusoglu said it is necessary for Turkey to be willing to achieve more goals.

On the sidelines of the meeting, Cavusoglu met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
Cavusoglu also held talks with Kudret Ozersay, deputy prime minister and foreign minister of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), and "evaluated cooperation" between the two countries, Cavusoglu said on Twitter.
