On December 14, 2022, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov met with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who arrived in our country the day before to participate in the first Summit of the heads of Turkmenistan of Azerbaijan and Turkiye.
In continuation of the meeting, an exchange of views took place on priority issues of further expanding cooperation, which is successfully developing on a bilateral and multilateral basis.
Particular emphasis was placed on the fact that in the economic sphere, Turkiye, being a long-term reliable partner of Turkmenistan, occupies one of the leading positions in our country in terms of trade turnover and investment.
In this regard, the need was emphasized to use the full potential of the Intergovernmental Commission and the Business Council as key tools for strengthening effective contacts and implementing new joint large-scale projects.
Among the most important areas of bilateral relations, the interlocutors identified the fuel and energy and transport and communications sectors. Noting that work is currently being successfully carried out between our countries on a bilateral basis, the heads of state named a number of jointly implemented large projects as a good example.
An integral, important component of the interstate dialogue is the humanitarian field, which is due to the historical, spiritual and cultural community that unites the two fraternal peoples. In this context, the interlocutors noted with satisfaction the intention of Turkmenistan and Turkiye to continue fruitful contacts in the fields of science, education, culture, art, and sports.
