Turkic States
The Organization of Turkic States, then known as the Turkic Council, was established in October 2009 after Turkiye, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan signed the Nakhchivan Agreement. Uzbekistan finalized its accession to the organization during the seventh summit of the Turkic Council on Oct. 15, 2019, in Baku. Hungary and Turkmenistan are observer states.

Representing 2.15% of the world's population and 1% of the world's land, the seven Turkic states renamed the Turkic Council as the Organization of Turkic States at the eighth summit held in Istanbul in November 2021. The organization represents a wide span of land encompassing 6,149 kilometers (3,821 miles) from the westernmost country of Hungary to the easternmost country of Kyrgyzstan. It will be an important player in every respect in the global economy and geopolitics, emerging as the new global actor of Eurasia.

The Organization of Turkic States is an organization dedicated to strengthening peace and stability, promoting wide-ranging cooperation  and disclosing the potential for common development among its member states. Although it brings together a particular group of countries, the organization does not take an exclusive approach. On the contrary, by promoting deeper relations and solidarity among Turkic-speaking countries, it aims to serve as a new regional instrument for advancing international cooperation in the Eurasian continent, particularly in Central Asia and the Caucasus.

All activities of the Organization of Turkic States are coordinated and monitored by its Secretariat, which is located in Istanbul in accordance with the Nakhchivan Agreement. Presidents meet once a year in a previously determined Turkic city. Senior officials and Ministers meet on a regular basis.

It is mentioned on the Turkish World Vision document that Organisation of Turkic States aims to make youth cooperation as an essential element of comprehensive intra-regional cooperation through joint projects on youth mobility, exchange and education, with a view to raising a generation with an awareness of unity, brotherhood and solidarity in the Turkic World,

One of the aims of the project is to sign sister-school agreements with high schools from Turkic states (Azerbaijan, Kazakhistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Hungary and Turkmenistan) to develop friendship, promote mutual understanding and cultural awareness.
