By Huseyn Hasanov- Trend:

The third session of the Turkmen-Bulgarian intergovernmental commission for economic cooperation is planned to be held March 16-18 in Sofia, said the Turkmen government March 14.

The visit of Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borissov to Ashgabat in August 2015 gave another momentum to the bilateral relations between the two countries. During the high level talks, energy and transportation sectors were defined as strategic areas for cooperation.

The talks in Ashgabat demonstrated the willingness of Turkmenistan and Bulgaria to cooperate in ensuring global energy security and diversification of energy flows.
