ASHGABAT, February 18 (Itar-Tass) —— Turkmenistan’s newly-elected president, Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, will pay his first official visits to Turkey and Ukraine. Agreements to that effect were achieved on Friday in telephone conversations with Abdullah Gul and Viktor Yanukovich, who congratulated Berdymukhamedov upon the beginning of his second tenure of office.
Berdymukhamedov and Gul agreed approaches to further building up the traditional inter-state dialogue, based on the economic potential, the Turkmen presidential service said. The Turkish president invited his Turkmen counterpart to pay a visit to Turkey later this month. Berdymukhamedov accepted the invitation with gratitude.
As he heard words of greeting from Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovich, Berdymukhamedov said that “Turkmenistan sees Ukraine as a sincere friend and reliable partner and a close associate in addressing many issues of regional and global politics. He said “the forthcoming state visit to Ukraine will be a landmark event in the modern history of relations between the two states and give them a fresh impetus.”
Turkmenistan’s president also received congratulations from the presidents of Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and Belarus.
