Turkmen and Uzbek President to hold talks in Avaza

Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev will pay a working visit to Turkmenistan on May 19-20.

Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov will have negotiations with his Uzbek counterpart in Avaza, the Turkmen government said.

Bilateral documents are planned to be signed after the meetings. Information on preparations for the Turkmen-Uzbek high level talks was given at a governmental meeting.

Berdimuhamedov noted that regular high-level meetings testify the mutual aspiration and interest of both countries in building up effective cooperation developed on traditions of friendship and good-neighborliness, on an equal, constructive and long-term basis.

The two countries are discussing at this stage the project on creation of the Uzbekistan-Turkmenistan-Iran-Oman transport route. This will allow increasing significantly the international freight transit and providing with a new communication corridor to world markets.
