President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov took part in an informal meeting of the heads of the CIS member states, held in St. Petersburg on Tuesday.
Speaking at the summit, the Turkmen leader highlighted the economic component as an important part of the integration processes in the CIS space, based on the compatibility of economic and structural parameters, the development of cooperation and partnerships, the building of production, technological and logistics chains, the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan reported.
The President of Turkmenistan also called for intensifying work with partners of the Commonwealth, primarily with regional economic associations such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Eurasian Economic Union, and the Economic Cooperation Organization. This will allow the CIS countries, using their own production, resource and technological potential, to enter the systemic lines of partnership, offering attractive joint projects in the transport, energy and industrial fields.
Speaking about the continuation of the fight against the consequences of COVID-19, Berdimuhamedov noted the particular importance of a consistent and early exit to the restoration of economic and trade ties, lifting of forced restrictions on transport links. As the head of Turkmenistan emphasized, national and international experience in combating the pandemic and its consequences allows us to hope for a successful result of this work.
During the meeting, the leaders of the CIS countries discussed topical issues on the agenda, primarily in the political-diplomatic, trade-economic and cultural-humanitarian spheres. The heads of state summed up the main results of this jubilee year - the 30th anniversary of the formation of the Commonwealth.
They also discussed issues of cooperation in the field of healthcare and the medical industry. In this context, an exchange of views took place on joint measures taken to prevent the further spread of COVID-19, specific steps for close cooperation of the CIS states in this direction, as well as a regular exchange of experience between the medical communities of the countries in the prevention and control of coronavirus infection.
