By Huseyn Hasanov- Trend:
Chairperson of the Majlis (the Turkmen parliament) Akja Nurberdiyeva accepted credentials of Venezuela's Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador Amenothep Zambrano Contreras, the Turkmen government said Nov. 13.
While speaking about the cooperation prospects, the diplomat stressed Venezuela's interest in establishing the effective partnership with Turkmenistan.
The cooperation between the two countries both bilaterally and as part of international organizations, especially the UN, will serve the interests of peace and prosperity of the friendly people of Turkmenistan and Venezuela.
Turkmenistan has recently intensified cooperation with Latin American countries. The then Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez visited Ashgabat in late 2009. He was the first president of the country on this continent who visited Turkmenistan.
The valuable experience of Venezuela, ranking first on oil reserves in Latin America, could be effectively used in the implementation of projects in Turkmenistan's fuel and energy complex, requiring additional investments and new technologies.
Turkmenistan intensified the work to increase the hydrocarbon production volume, its supply to the world markets, increasing the capacity of processing industry, including petrochemical production.
Ashgabat and Caracas stressed broad prospects in the chemical, food and textile industries and agriculture. Earlier it was reported that Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov intends to visit Venezuela at the invitation of this country.
