At a press conference held on June 11 in the Russian embassy, Alexander Blokhin paid attention to interstate cooperation, which, according to him, has "strategic partnership" status.
The diplomat stressed the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the entire global community. At the same time, Russia and Turkmenistan were able to overcome this situation with minimal losses.
According to the Russian Ambassador, the trade turnover between the countries has grown by 40%. Turkmenistan is actively cooperating with its Russian partners - KAMAZ, Tatneft, Lukoil and others. In addition, Turkmenistan is a reliable supplier of natural gas to Russia. Interaction in the cultural sphere, particularly between Turkmenistan and St. Petersburg, is expected to intensify in the near future.
The diplomat noted the effective work of the Turkmen authorities in providing the population with Russian vaccines against COVID-19.
Media representatives congratulated Alexander Blokhin on his 10th anniversary as Russian Ambassador and wished him success in the development of Turkmen-Russian relations.
