The Turkmen delegation highlighted that in the current situation, CIS countries need to establish effective cooperation mechanisms. The need to coordinate actions in order to ensure sanitary and quarantine measures at the borders between the CIS countries was noted.

The draft Strategy for Economic Development of the CIS for the period until 2030 was also discussed. During the meeting number of draft documents was adopted, the report says.
