They discussed topical issues in their countries' strategic partnership and developing integrated cooperation, including cooperation in civil nuclear energy and electrical energy, the peaceful development of outer space, joint projects in the military and technological spheres, developing transport infrastructure and cross-border cooperation. During the talks they also exchanged views on a number of international problems.
Following the talks an intergovernmental agreement on cooperation in constructing the Trans-Caspian Gas Pipeline was signed in the presence of the presidents of Russia and Kazakhstan, Vladimir Putin and Nursultan Nazarbaev, Russian Industry and Energy Minister Viktor Khristenko, Industry and Trade Minister of Kazakhstan Galym Orazbakov, and the executive director of Turkmenistan's State Agency for the Management and Use of Hydrocarbon Resources, Bairammyrat Myradov.
The parties plan to construct the pipeline along the Caspian coast — 360 km on Turkmenistan's territory and about 150 km through Kazakhstan, in order to link it with the existing Central Asia-Centre pipeline on the Russia-Kazakhstan border. The new gas pipeline will increase the existing capacity to export Turkmenistan's gas to Russia by 20 billion cubic metres. Creating a Trans-Caspian pipeline system and reconstructing the Central Asia-Centre pipeline system will enable the parties to increase annual deliveries of Turkmenistan's gas to 80 billion cubic metres. The presidents of Russia, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan signed the Joint Declaration on Constructing a Trans-Caspian Gas Pipeline on 12 May 2007 at a meeting in Turkmenbashi.
Before signing the document Vladimir Putin and Nursultan Nazarbaev, had a telephone conversation with President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov.
Following their talks the leaders of Russia and Kazakhstan made press statements.
