Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, March 25
By Huseyn Hasanov - Trend:
Turkmenistan and Turkey have discussed the promising areas of cooperation in transportation and logistics, said the message from Turkmenistan's Foreign Ministry.
The discussions were held during the meeting with chairman of the executive committee of Turkey's International Transporters Association, Nejat Fatih Sener, at Turkmenistan's Foreign Ministry.
During the meeting, the parties emphasized the importance of comprehensive cooperation between the transportation ministries for creating multilateral transportation and transit corridors.

Turkmenistan hosted a five-party meeting of heads of railway and maritime agencies of Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Iran and Georgia in early March. The meeting's agenda included the development of the East-West multi-modal transportation corridor and joint measures for increasing the transit traffic.
