“The meeting with the President of Turkmenistan was held in a very constructive manner”. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister Konstantin Chuichenko in an interview with the ORIENT news agency.
- We have discussed in detail the issues of trade and economic cooperation between Russia and Turkmenistan. We talked in detail about cooperation in the energy and gas sector, and we discussed transport issues. We have outlined key points of growth that should ensure the growth of trade between our countries next year. That is how K. Chuichenko commented on a meeting with Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.
As reported, Deputy Prime Minister Konstantin Chuychenko visited Turkmenistan on Tuesday, during which he met with President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and attended a meeting of the Intergovernmental Turkmen-Russian Commission for Economic Cooperation.
- We hope that in 2019 we will already receive significant figures given the fact that we have renewed cooperation in the gas sector. That is, we will get a significant increase in terms of turnover in comparison with 2018, - said K. Chuichenko in an interview.
- We also discussed in detail and in detail with the head of state issues of humanitarian cooperation. For our part, we expressed gratitude for the fact that they carefully treat the Russian language in Turkmenistan. This is very important for Russia, because Russian is the language of international communication, - said K. Chuychenko. - 28 thousand students from Turkmenistan study at Russian universities. This is also an enormous potential for strengthening our relations.
Speaking about the priorities of the Turkmen-Russian cooperation, K. Chuichenko noted: “First of all, this is cooperation in the gas sector. Through agriculture, Turkmenistan is interested in buying elite seeds in Russia. Russian machinery produced at the Rosselmash enterprise may also be of interest to Turkmenistan, primarily because of its qualitative characteristics, as well as price parameters. AvtoVAZ would like to enter the market of Turkmenistan with its products, which, we are sure, will be in demand. ”
“The development issues of the Caspian Sea are extremely interesting for both countries,” said K. Chuichenko. - In August, the Caspian Economic Forum will be held in Turkmenistan. We will represent at a high level the Russian delegation, which, in general, will be engaged in the formation of a package of projects, whose implementation will give impetus to the development of logistics in the Caspian Sea basin.
Considering that the visit of the delegation of the Russian Federation to Turkmenistan was held on the eve of the holiday of May 9, K. Chuichenko noted in this connection: “Victory Day is indeed the greatest holiday. This is our common holiday. All the peoples of the former Soviet Union forged this victory, suffered the hardships and sufferings that were the guarantee of the Great Victory. And let me congratulate on this great holiday, first of all, veterans who live a lot on the territory of Turkmenistan. Wish them health, happiness. ”
“We congratulate the President of Turkmenistan and the entire Turkmen people on this great holiday, we wish prosperity and well-being, and, of course, a peaceful sky,” said K. Chuichenko.
