He said initiatives for furtherance of education and scientific linkages, cultural and people to people contacts within the ECO will also be deliberated upon. "We firmly believe ECO-sponsored regionalism not only improves prospects for individual and collective economic development, but enhances political and security relations among member states", he said.

"Connectivity for regional prosperity is the theme of the summit", Geo Tv quoted Aziz as saying. Mustafa Akıncı, president of Turkish Cyprus, which has observer status in the bloc, said his country wanted to contribute more effectively to the organization's work.
