The package also includes a cooperation programme between the governments in culture and arts as well as between the foreign ministries.
The signing ceremony ended by signing of a joint statement of the two presidents.
The two sides note the availability of interaction in the fuel and energy complex and transport communications.

Dushanbe counts on getting access to Turkmen energy, including natural fuel and seeks increase of oil products supply to the country.
