UAE, Turkmenistan explore ways to boost bilateral ties


A high-level UAE delegation, headed by Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, is in Turkmenistan to discuss ways to strengthen bilateral ties between the two countries.

Dr. Al Jaber held talks with Turkmenistan's President Serdar Berdimuhamedov and conveyed the well wishes from the UAE leadership.

On his part, Berdimuhamedov returned his greetings to the leadership and affirmed his keenness to enhance cooperation between the two countries in the fields of oil, gas, clean energy, infrastructure, the banking sector, and explore opportunities for sustainable joint investments.

During the meeting, the delegation also reviewed the UAE's readiness to host the UN Climate Change Conference (COP28) in 2023, and ways of intensifying action to ensure energy security and support progress in climate action, as well as sustainable economic and social development.

This visit, which included a series of meetings with senior officials from Turkmenistan, comes within the framework of the keenness of the two countries' leaderships to develop bilateral relations and to follow up on the agreements signed during Berdimuhamedov's visit to the UAE in November.
