"While understanding today’s threats we cannot but talk about them. This is international terrorism that cannot but concern all of us, especially when we are in the regions close to Afghanistan," Shoigu told Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow.
"What is happening today in Syria, Libya, Iraq is of course those threats that we cannot ignore. Of course, we should pay the most serious attention to them. This is in fact what Russia is doing," he said.
Shoigu also informed the president of Turkmenistan about the details of a military operation carried out by Russia in Syria.
The minister said Turkmenistan is a strategic partner of Russia, and this refers to both the economic and cultural areas. Shoigu stressed that to a large extent such partnership comes due to personal relations of the Russian and Turkmen presidents. The strategic partnership of the two countries is constantly confirmed in practice.
The official visit of Shoigu to Turkmenistan began with the ceremony of laying a wreath to the People’s Memory memorial complex in the country’s capital Ashgabat.
