By Huseyn Hasanov- Trend:
Preparation for the official visit of President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhammadov to Afghanistan, scheduled for August 27 was discussed at the last meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers in Ashgabat, said the message of the government of Turkmenistan.
The message said that the priority issues of interstate cooperation in the context of implementing the earlier achieved agreements and plans for the future will be put on the agenda of the regular bilateral talks at the highest level, following which it is expected to sign a package of important documents.
The president of Turkmenistan said that the country's stance is exclusively peaceful settlement of the situation in Afghanistan by taking concrete steps to restore the Afghan economy and social infrastructure, according to the message.
All this is proved by large-scale projects initiated by the Turkmen side, such as the construction of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline.
Another example is the construction of Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Tajikistan railway, which started in 2013. In the future, this railway will become an important link of routes of transit transport shipment on the regional and international level, contributing to
the active integration of the countries participating in this project in the modern global economic system.
