Turkey to build power plant in Turkmenistan

Turkey will build a natural gas power plant in Turkmenistan, Turkish Energy Minister Hilmi Guler said on Wednesday.

Guler, who held energy talks with Turkmen officials, said that Turkish Petroleum Corporation will also take part in oil and natural gas exploration works in Caspian region of Turkmenistan.

Guler said he met Turkmenistan's President Gurbanguly Berdymuhammedov and discussed new cooperation opportunities on energy.

"But my visit to Turkmenistan has nothing to do with recent developments in the Caucasia. It was a scheduled visit," he said.

Guler also said investment opportunities in solar and wind power in Turkmenistan were discussed at his meetings with Turkmen officials.

Guler and his delegation, who completed talks in Turkmenistan, headed to Kazakhstan to attend an energy forum.
