The statement comes one day after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the three leaders would soon meet in what he called "a new format of regional cooperation."
The agenda is expected to include economic cooperation, bilateral relations, and discussion on the Convention on the Caspian Sea document, which would define ownership of the Caspian among its littoral states.
