Belarus suggests new mutually beneficial avenues of cooperation to Turkmenistan

MINSK, 8 October (BelTA) – Belarus suggests new mutually beneficial avenues of cooperation to Turkmenistan. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement at the expanded participation meeting with Turkmenistan President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov on 8 October, BelTA has learned.

In particular, the Belarusian side is ready to supply Belarusian harvesters, passenger buses, railway freight cars to Turkmenistan. “I am confident that the Belarusian vehicles, which are being tested in complicated climatic conditions of Turkmenistan, will prove their ability and we will sign mutually beneficial contracts,” remarked the Belarusian head of state.

In his words, vigorous cooperation between the Belarusian company Fidmash and Turkmen oil and gas processing concerns opens up new prospects in the mining and chemical industries.

According to the Belarusian leader, the establishment of a joint venture to make uniforms for Turkmen power-wielding agencies could be a pilot project in the light industry. With this in mind the Belarusian side suggested signing an intergovernmental agreement on cooperation in this sphere in order to create the relevant legal framework.

“Certainly, we should bear in mind the conventionally developed ties — future shipments of Belarusian trucks and tractors,” noted the Belarusian head of state.

“The development of new avenues of interaction taking into account Turkmenistan’s policy in favor of the accelerated modernization of the production sector creates a real base for the future expansion of the mutual trade,” said the Belarus President. With this goal in mind Alexander Lukashenko suggested that co-chairpersons of the Belarusian-Turkmen intergovernmental commission for economic cooperation should develop a roadmap that will take care of a wide range of bilateral cooperation avenues.

Alexander Lukashenko remarked that there is mutual interest in matters other than pure trade. The project to build the Garlyk mining and processing factory remains the key one in the bilateral relations. The President stressed that the Belarusian side prioritizes quality fulfillment of its obligations.

Belarusian economic operators are also ready to take an active part in the implementation of projects in the area of transport communications construction and logistics development in Turkmenistan.

The Belarus President mentioned the expansion of contacts in the sphere of science. Alexander Lukashenko said he was confident that the research products that Belarusian scientists offer will be of interest for government agencies of Turkmenistan. “As you know, the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus is in negotiations on the possibility of shipping multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicle systems to Turkmenistan,” said the Belarusian leader. “Taking into account our friendly relations we are ready to start the joint production of unmanned aerial vehicles in Turkmenistan in the future apart from shipping them”.Belarus suggests new mutually beneficial avenues of cooperation to Turkmenistan
