THE HEADS OF THE ENERGY SECTORS OF TURKMENISTAN, AZERBAIJAN AND TURKIYE MET IN AVAZA
Issues of deepening cooperation in the energy sector were considered at a meeting of the heads of the relevant departments of Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Turkiye, held on December 13 in the morning in the Avaza National Tourist Zone on the eve of trilateral summit talks.
As noted, Turkmenistan, being the largest energy power, consistently stands for the establishment of broad international cooperation, taking into account mutual interests.
The key aspects of the successfully implemented strategy in this area are the consistent development of the domestic fuel and energy complex, the growth of oil and gas production, improving the quality of products, increasing the volume and diversification of energy supplies to world, including European markets.
Particular importance is attached to the development of the electric power complex. Thanks to the attention of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov and the huge investments invested in the development of the industry, the production capacities of the energy industry have increased many times in recent years, which makes it possible to fully meet not only the country's domestic needs, but also the growing volumes of exports of Turkmen electricity from year to year.
The parties came to the unanimous opinion that the great prospects for expanding partnership in this area make it necessary to establish coordinated international cooperation based on legal norms, mutual respect and consideration of each other's interests.
In this context, confidence was expressed that the upcoming Summit of the Heads of State of Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Turkiye would be a significant step along this path, directly contributing to the strengthening of the established constructive dialogue between friendly countries and their fraternal peoples, traditionally linked by ties of friendship, mutual understanding and trusting partnership.
