In particular, a memorandum of understanding between the governments of the two countries on the main principles of cooperation in the area of transport was signed as well as an intergovernmental agreement on cooperation in the prevention of emergencies and the alleviation of their consequences.

The agreements on friendly relations and cooperation were signed by the cities of Minsk and Ashgabat, the administrations of Minsk Oblast and Lebap Province.
