“We in Russia greatly value your personal contribution to developing the diverse and mutually beneficial ties between Russia and Turkmenistan,” Mr Medvedev said in his message. “Our peoples are close neighbours bound by a common history and solid traditions of friendship. Our ties have gained new vigour and substance over these last years, and this is very important.
I have warm memories of our conversations during your state visit to Russia in March this year. I am sure that implementation of the agreements we have reached will help to intensify our bilateral cooperation and consolidate stability and security in Central Asia, and the high level of trust that we have established will help us to resolve any issues that arise in a spirit of friendship and understanding”.
