The President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdymuhamedov has appointed ambassadors to Afghanistan and Pakistan, an official Turkmen source said.

Atajan Movlamov has been appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Turkmenistan to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan (Islamabad) and Hemra Togalakov to Afghanistan (Kabul City).

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Turkmenistan to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan (Islamabad) Atajan Movlamov has been appointed and Ambassador to Afghanistan (Kabul City) was Hemra Togalakov.

The possibility to output energy sales into new markets ties Ashgabat with these two countries. . In particular, it is the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) project, to which Bangladesh can join.

The base document for the promotion of TAPI is the Ashgabat agreement of the state parties on the early implementation of the project signed at the end of 2010. The issue of security of the project passing through troubled Afghanistan is still on the agenda.

Turkmenistan has signed a memorandum of understanding on the TAPI project with Afghanistan. At the same time the purchase agreements of Turkmen gas were signed with the State Gas Systems of Pakistan and Indian GAIL ltd.

The Asian Development Bank, acting as the TAPI project secretariat, previously noted that after more than 20 years of complex negotiations, the 1800 kilometre pipeline that will connect Turkmenistan with the markets of South Asia, has become one step closer to the reality that speaks about an 'unprecedented new chapter in regional relations'.
Turkmenistan supplies gas to China, Iran and Russia at this stage.
