Good prospects evidently seen from afar
Belarus and Turkmenistan keen to exploit co-operation potential
Mr. Berdimuhamedov believes that a joint project to build the Garlyk mining and processing factory will serve interests across the whole Central Asian region, saying, “It’s just the beginning, and we expect more.” He is also convinced that the chemical industry in Turkmenistan shows promise, and can only benefit from Belarus’ help. Mr. Berdimuhamedov thanked the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, and the whole country for efforts to strengthen bilateral ties with Turkmenistan.
Mr. Myasnikovich noted that all the agreements reached during the visit of the Turkmenistan President to Belarus, including those signed after talks with Mr. Lukashenko, are being implemented. He underlined the long-term nature of these projects and emphasised that co-operation is being ‘expanded across various fields’.
Mr. Myasnikovich also mentioned high-tech interaction, as evinced by Belarus’ planned delivery of two unmanned aerial complexes to Turkmenistan. He views the personnel training centre as another promising project.
Mr. Berdimuhamedov praised Belarus-Turkmenistan co-operation in the humanitarian sector, especially in education, and remarked that young people from Turkmenistan are being educated at all Belarusian universities.
