Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdymuhamedov proposed holding a scientific forum on the culture of the Ancient East with Iran. Berdymuhamedov made the offer in Teheran, the Miras channel reported.

Turkmenistan and Iran regularly hold joint cultural events and festivals. Turkmenistan hosted an Iranian cinema week last year, as well as an exhibition of Iranian goods.
