BEIJING, February 3. /TASS/. Relations between Russia and Central Asia's Turkmenistan alongside bilateral cooperation within international organizations will be discussed on Tuesday when Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visits the Turkmen capital, Ashgabat.
Lavrov’s trip to the former Soviet republic is expected to develop arrangements made by the two countries' presidents last September.
The parties will exchange views on major international issues, including cooperation within the United Nations and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), a loose alliance of former Soviet republics, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
Special attention will be paid to developments in Central Asia, particularly Afghanistan, and developments in the Middle East, the ministry said. The ministers will sign a program for working together in 2015, including a schedule of consultations to discuss bilateral and multilateral problems.
