In close cooperation with our partners, first of all, with neighboring States, Turkmenistan is carrying out the necessary work to ensure that these relations are regular, so that reliable mutual supply and transit transport schemes are maintained
In General, all our States represent a natural territory through which international cooperation in Eurasia is carried out. This fact imposes a special responsibility on us, and the current and future stability of economic processes on the continent depends to a large extent on the coordination of our actions."
