The new British Ambassador to Turkmenistan shared her impressions of the meeting with Berdimuhamedov

New Ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to Turkmenistan Lucia Wild shared her impressions of a personal meeting with President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. The note was published on the website of the British government.

Wild said the meeting was held in a positive and warm atmosphere.

“We noted that this year is an anniversary year - 30 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations. I congratulated His Excellency on the 30th anniversary of independence. During the meeting, we discussed the deepening of our cooperation on climate change, trade, education, health, and international and regional agendas. We also touched on our shared family passions – cycling, dogs and horses.”

The diplomat said that she presented the President of Turkmenistan with traditional chinaware made in her mother's hometown of Stoke-on-Trent and a book about the Queen's horses. She, in turn, was presented with a Turkmen carpet.

The Ambassador also noted that she “looks forward to getting to know the people and places of Turkmenistan” and to begin her duties to “strengthen relations between the UK and Turkmenistan”.

Great Britain is one of the first countries to establish diplomatic relations with independent Turkmenistan. On January 23, the countries will celebrate the 30th anniversary of maintaining diplomatic relations. Lucia Wild is the tenth British ambassador to the Central Asian country.
