President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov received US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Donald Lu.
At the talks, the desire of Turkmenistan and the United States to continue multi-vector cooperation both in bilateral and multilateral formats within the framework of international organizations, and primarily the UN, was noted.
The parties paid special attention to the prospects for trade and economic partnership, which is one of the priority areas of Turkmen-American relations. In this regard, the role of the business council “Turkmenistan – USA”, which is directly involved in holding joint business forums, exhibitions and meetings, contributing to the deepening of mutually beneficial ties in key sectors of the economy, was noted.
The parties also exchanged views on expanding partnerships in the fields of culture, education, science, technology and ecology.
