According to Erol, ensuring peace and stability in Afghanistan is the main agenda item of all the Central Asian states. It is not possible to refer the prosperity of Central Asia without the socio-economic development of the country in question and its full integration into the economic processes of the region.

In addition to the international conference on “Central and South Asia: Regional Connectivity, Challenges and Opportunities” successfully held in Tashkent in July 2021 with the participation of high-level officials, the President of ANKASAM also stated that there is a need to organize additional meetings to discuss the problems and threats to regional security and to debate on regional issues.

In summary, the President of ANKASAM evaluates this summit as “a pendulum synchronisation” since security matters are not issues that any state can solve alone. It can only be resolved by joint efforts and cooperation.
