DUSHANBE, September 3 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said his meeting with Turkmen President Gurbanduly Berdymukhamedov focused on the Turkmen leader’s upcoming visit to Moscow, as well as economic and humanitarian cooperation.
“We agreed with you by phone that you’d visit Russia. Now we have a chance to discuss all details of your visit to make it intense and fruitful in order to meet good partnership and friendship that unite Russia and Turkmenistan,” Medvedev said.
