MOSCOW, November 1. /TASS/. President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov will pay a working visit to Russia on Tuesday at an invitation from Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin press service said.
"The two leaders are expected to discuss key issues of bilateral cooperation. They will also exchange views on topical reginal problems," the press service said.
Russia and Turkmenistan maintain close contacts at the high and top levels. In October, Turkmenistan marked the 25th anniversary of its independence. In a congratulatory telegram, the Russian leader hailed the "existing relations of strategic partnership between Russia and Turkmenistan" and expressed confidence in "further expansion of bilateral cooperation in various areas and constructive cooperation in regional and international affairs."
A key area of cooperation between the two countries is combating terrorism. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said earlier that Russia is interested in coordination of efforts to exterminate the terrorist threat, stop drug trafficking and uproot organized crime. The minister noted that the intergovernmental commission of trade and economic cooperation "has started its work very energetically." Lavrov noted progress in agriculture and medical industry.
