Speaking by video link at the summit of the Turkic Council on the current situation with COVID-2019, Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov emphasized the key importance of maintaining a stable state of trade and economic sphere and, in particular, transport communication between the countries.
The leader of the Turkmen nation noted the close cooperation with neighboring countries aimed at organizing and maintaining regular supplies and transit traffic. For example, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan have done their best to maintain ferry transportation, which ensures cargo flows on the Turkmenbashi-Baku route across the Caspian Sea. Well-coordinated interaction between the partner countries also makes it possible to continue normal work on the "East-West" and "North-South" transport corridors.
The President of Turkmenistan emphasized that it is the Turkic-speaking states that play a crucial role in ensuring international cooperation in Eurasia. In this regard, Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov called for joint dialogue and concerted action to maintain a stable economic situation.
