Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine has reached an agreement with the Ministry of Transport of Turkmenistan on the exchange of quotas for cargo transportation in 2013, according to the press service of the Ukrainian Ministry.

It covers the traffic flow of road transport in the amount of 500 units, including 400 bilateral and 100 transit permits.
The Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine is currently conducting the relevant work on preparation of documents.

Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has expressed his confidence to the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov in deepening cooperation between the two countries earlier this year.

"I am confident that business interests in effective and well-coordinated work will allow for joint implementation of all agreements we have reached on deepening the Ukrainian-Turkmen cooperation in foreign policy, energy, financial, construction, cultural, humanitarian and other spheres," he said in the letter.

Ukrainian leader, in turn, has also invited Berdimuhamedov to visit Ukraine at a convenient time.
