The head of Gazprom met with the Berdimuhamedovs in Ashgabat

On August 29, a working visit of a Gazprom delegation headed by Chairman of the Management Board Alexey Miller to Turkmenistan took place. This was reported by the press service of the Russian gas company.

In Ashgabat, Miller discussed energy cooperation with Turkmen President Serdar Berdimuhamedov , and also met with Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty Milli Gengesh (upper house of parliament) Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov .

No other details about the talks have been provided at this time.

It should be noted that three days before, Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov with the Order of Merit for the Fatherland, IV degree.

Vladimir Putin announced the intention of the Gazprom leadership to visit Turkmenistan a month ago, during his visit to Ashgabat to participate in the VI Caspian Summit.

In 2019, Russia resumed imports of Turkmen gas after a four-year hiatus following claims by Turkmengas that accused Gazprom of Gazprom's insolvency. In response, Gazprom filed a lawsuit demanding a revision of prices for gas purchased from Turkmenistan and a refund of $5 billion for overpayment.
