The message reads, in part:
“Based on the good traditions of friendship and mutual respect that bring the peoples of our two countries together, we have managed, over the past decades, to bring our interstate cooperation to the level of strategic partnership. Bilateral cooperation is dynamically developing in the political, trade, economic, energy, humanitarian and many other areas.
I believe our concerted efforts will help us ensure further progress in promoting partner relations between Russia and Turkmenistan in all areas. This fully meets the interests of the two friendly peoples and contributes to enhancing security and stability in the Central Asia and the Caspian Sea region.”
