China, Turkmenistan set to continue expansion of practical cooperation
09:12, 27 August 2014, 418

AKIPRESS.COM - Turkmen-China China and Turkmenistan are set to continue expansion of practical cooperation as Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli arrived in Ashgabat Tuesday to give a boost to bilateral relations, China Daily reported.

Zhang was scheduled to meet with President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, and co-chair with Deputy Prime Minister Baymurat Hojamuhammedov the third meeting of the Chinese-Turkmen cooperation committee.

The two sides were expected to discuss a wide range of issues, including trade, energy, infrastructure and development of the Silk Road Economic Belt, an initiative proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Zhang's trip to the Central Asian country is yet another high-level contact between China and Turkmenistan after the Presidents of the two countries exchanged visits in less than one year.

During Xi's visit to Turkmenistan in September 2013, he and Berdymukhamedov jointly put into production a natural gas field that had been developed by a Chinese oil company. When Berdymukhamedov visited China in May, the two countries signed cooperation documents on a wide range of areas.

Two-way trade topped $10 billion last year, compared to $4.5 million when the two countries established official relations in 1992.

Turkmenistan is the first leg of Zhang's three-nation tour, which will also take him to the Czech Republic and Russia.
