On September 22, 2020, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan hosted a meeting between Foreign Minister Rashid Meredov and Chinese Ambassador Sun Weidong, whose diplomatic mission in our country is coming to an end.
The foreign minister expressed gratitude to the Chinese ambassador for his contribution to strengthening cooperation between the two powers. Sun Weidong noted that his work in Turkmenistan was particularly important for him because of the strategic nature of the Turkmen-Chinese partnership, and thanked the government of our country for facilitating the diplomat's mission. The sides mutually assessed the high importance of partnership between Turkmenistan and China in all spheres - political and diplomatic, trade and economic, cultural and humanitarian, as well as cooperation within the UN format. The sides also discussed prospects for intensive diversification of cooperation, including the possibility of investing in projects in Turkmenistan. As we wrote earlier, the Chinese company CNPC International participates in the development of three new gas fields in Turkmenistan.
We should also remind you that yesterday Turkmen diplomats take part in Peace Day celebrations in Beijing.
