John McGregor, Head of the OSCE Center in Ashgabat:

“Energy diplomacy is the newest functional area of modern diplomacy. In recent years, its role has steadily increased in the energy sector and serves as a tool for lobbying the political and economic interests of states in the international arena. That is why energy security issues are one of the main priorities of global and national politics and require constructive interstate dialogue and effective cooperation. "

The online seminar is a continuation of the cooperation of the OSCE Center with Turkmenistan in the field of energy security, part of which is support in the development and implementation of the Program for the Development of Energy Diplomacy of Turkmenistan for 2021-2025, the source said.
