Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, Dec. 19
By Huseyn Hasanov – Trend:
Ashgabat hosted a meeting between the heads of consular services of foreign ministries of Turkmenistan and Poland, the Turkmen Foreign Ministry said in a message Dec. 19.
The Polish side was represented by Miroslaw Stawski, deputy director of the Consular Department of Poland’s Foreign Ministry.
During the meeting, the sides exchanged views on prospects of bilateral cooperation. The two countries hold negotiations on intensification of cooperation in such promising areas as energy, textile industry, agriculture, high technologies and tourism.
Poland has a favorable geographical location in Europe’s center that allows actively developing transit routes for energy supplies from the Caspian region to Europe, which is an important stimulus for the development of mutually beneficial cooperation, said the message.
Turkmenistan sells gas at its borders and the country has significant gas reserves proven by independent Western auditors. Currently, negotiations are underway with the European Union (EU) and Azerbaijan, which can become a transit country in the Trans-Caspian Gas Pipeline project.
