TURKMENISTAN CONTINUES TO INCREASE EXPORT OF ELECTRICITY TO AFGHANISTAN

In order to implement the plans envisaged in the Concept for the Development of the Electric Power Industry of Turkmenistan for 2013-2020 to increase the export of Turkmen electricity, as well as to continue cooperation between the Government of Turkmenistan and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in the electric power industry, the President of Turkmenistan signed the Resolution, authorizing to sign contracts for the supply of electricity from Turkmenistan to the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.

Parties actively reinforce the contractual-legal base of bilateral collaboration in the spheres of mutual interest. As is known, a number of significant documents were signed aimed at the facilitation of further implementation of joint infrastructural projects between the two states.

In this context, it is important to note about the adherence of Turkmenistan to putting together the efforts in the process of prompt implementation of energy, transport, and other projects, and also to implement the infrastructural projects aimed at further socio-economic development of Afghanistan and the region in general.

Turkmenistan pays great attention to the stable development of the neighboring country and renders fraternal solidarity and active support in its integration into the peaceful course of development.
