ASHGABAT, December 15. /TASS/. Turkmenistan and Georgia signed an intergovernmental agreement on cooperation in transport on Monday.
Both countries confirmed the intention to create a transport corridor to the European and Persian Gulf markets.
The agreement was concluded after the talks between Turkmenistan's President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov and his Georgian counterpart Georgy Margvelashvili, the presidential press service said.
The parties seek to implement a program for building a transit and transport corridor to link Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey due to the Kazakhstan-Turkmenistan-Iran railway line, which has recently opened. The transport corridor is expected to give an impetus to social and economic restoration of Afghanistan, increase trade relations and involve the country in key regional projects and the international infrastructure.
