Turkmenistan Stresses Development of Bilateral Ties with Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov stressed further expansion of mutual cooperation with Iran in different fields, and reiterated that the development of bilateral ties between the two countries is a priority of his country's foreign policy.



"Countries in the Central Asia should pay serious attention to the development and expansion of future cooperation with traditional partners and neighboring countries such as Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Turkey," Berdimuhamedov said in cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

Iran buys almost a third of Turkmenistan's exported gas, relying on it for heating in winter and using it year round to meet industrial demands in the Northern regions distant from the country's own national grid.

Iran attaches great importance to its strategic ties with Turkmenistan due to the country's strategic position in the Central Asia.

In July, Berdimuhamedov stressed that his country has the largest volume of mutual cooperation and the most intimate neighborly relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

"We have the best regional relations with Iran," Berdimuhamedov underscored at that time.

Iranian trade officials have always reiterated that they are ready to export technical and engineering services for Turkmenistan's energy development and housing construction.
