Turkey, Turkmenistan sign action plan for next two years

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Sunday met with his Turkmen counterpart Rasit Meredow, and the two ministers signed an action plan covering the next two years to boost cooperation.

Speaking before the meeting in the Turkmen capital of Ashkhabad, Davutoglu said Turkey was ready to extend any kind of assistance to Turkmenistan in any field, adding that the two countries needed to further improve their relations.

Davutoglu also invited Meredow on a formal visit to Turkey.

Meredow, on his part, said two countries share similar views on every issue in the international arena.

Davutoglu is visiting Turkmenistan to participate in ceremonies to mark the 15th anniversary of neutrality of Turkmenistan. He is the first Turkish foreign minister to pay an official visit to Turkmenistan in nine years.

On Saturday, Davutoglu delivered a speech in an international conference on "Turkmenistan's Permanent Neutrality: Cooperation for Peace, Security and Development."

Davutoglu will return to Turkey later on Sunday after wrapping up his talks in Turkmenistan.

Turkmenistan is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its permanent neutrality, which gave the country independence from the former Soviet Union. The neutrality was approved by 185 countries on December 12, 1995.
