This was stated during the meeting of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Turkmenistan to France Shohrat Jumayev with French Senate's France-Central Asia Friendship Group, Senator Herve Morey and other French officials.
The parties discussed the possibility of holding a series of events designed to intensify the inter-parliamentary dialogue.
The sides agreed to organize meetings of the ambassador with senators-members of the France-Central Asia Friendship Group in the near future to exchange views on aspects of cooperation.
In addition, the key aspects of the Turkmen-French inter-parliamentary dialogue, as well as issues of cooperation in such areas as trade and economic, culture and education were discussed.
