ANKARA, March 3 /TASS/. The Presidents of Turkey and Turkmenistan, Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, have agreed to develop the whole range of projects, including in the energy sector, the two leaders told a news conference on Tuesday in the wake of the talks.
"Our two countries have a tremendous potential for cooperation, which should be implemented in practice. In the course of the talks we exchanged views on transporting Turkmen gas to Turkey, and from Turkey — to the European markets. Of course, our energy ministers also discuss the bilateral cooperation in every detail", Erdogan said, adding that the two countries saw eye-to-eye on this important issue.
Turkmenistan is an important country for Turkey’s construction sector, the Turkish leader said. He added that the total cost of theTurkish projects implemented in Turkmenistan amounted to $46 billion, and the bilateral relations in this area and in trade and economic relations were constantly evolving.
Turkey will continue to maintain close contacts with Turkmenistan in dealing with regional issues, including in combatting terrorism, Erdogan said.
Bermukhamedov echoed his remarks by saying that the two nations’ aim was peace and stability in the region, noting the importance of integration with international organizations, specifically, the United Nations.
He said that regional cooperation was a priority issue for his country, noting that Turkmenistan would mark the 20th anniversary of its neutrality policy later this year.
