President of Turkmenistan: I would like to note the remarkable chairmanship of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the Non-Aligned Movement
- 21 January 2021
the relations between Turkmenistan and the Republic of Azerbaijan are developing consistently and dynamically today. We successfully cooperate in the international arena as supporters of common peace, stability and security, said President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov in a meeting through video conferencing with President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev in connection with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Government of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Government of Turkmenistan on joint exploration and development of hydrocarbon resources of the “Dostlug” field in the Caspian Sea, APA reports..
Our countries share the same views on energy security, the configuration of international energy flows and the architecture of world energy as a whole, which are fundamental issues on the global agenda. It is necessary to emphasize the active and effective interaction of the two countries in international organizations. Turkmenistan expresses its gratitude to Azerbaijan for its continued support of its international initiatives and as a co-author of a number of draft resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly put forward by Turkmenistan. In turn, I confirm that Turkmenistan is ready to support the initiatives and proposals put forward by Azerbaijan in international organizations. In this context, I would like to note the remarkable chairmanship of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the Non-Aligned Movement. This is further evidence of the high authority of Azerbaijan and its leadership. During the successful Non-Aligned Movement Summit in October 2019, Turkmenistan was committed to building a global energy security system based on fair and transparent principles, equal use of energy resources and their delivery, and consideration and recognition of the interests of energy producers, suppliers and consumers.
