The Turkmen side also takes every effort to create favorable conditions for the citizens of Uzbekistan in Turkmenistan.
Noting that such invaluable qualities inherent in our peoples as fraternal mutual assistance and willingness to help each other, today, during this difficult period, are demonstrated with special emphasis, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov assured that in the future Uzbekistan could count on all possible support and assistance from Turkmenistan.

Reaffirming the mutual commitment to offer new impact to the development of interstate dialogue, the parties expressed confidence in the inviolability of traditionally friendly relations and the successful continuation of the established constructive partnership.

The heads of two friendly states congratulated each other on the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War and wished WWII veterans good health, happiness and longevity.

Presidents Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and Shavkat Mirziyoyev congratulated each other and the peoples of the two countries on the holy month of Ramadan.
