“One of the serious problems of modern times is the reliability of energy supplies, their stability and continuity,” Berdimuhammedov at a SCO summit in Dushanbe, which he attended as a guest of honour.
“A new energy infrastructure in Eurasia is an emerging reality. One way or another, Turkmenistan and SCO countries are engaged in its establishment and development,” he said.
As an example, he named the construction of the region’s largest Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Kazakhstan-China and the Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Tajikistan-Kyrgyzstan-China gas pipelines, and the successful operation of a second trunk gas pipeline between Turkmenistan and Iran.
Another example is the construction of a 1,000-km railroad from Kazakhstan to Iran. Work is underway to build a railroad from Turkmenistan to Tajikistan via Afghanistan.
Berdimuhammedov said the creation of regional and continental transport corridors “assumes special importance under these circumstances”.
