PakistanNawaz Sharif to visit to Turkmenistan on Dec 12

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will leave for Turkmenistan on December 12 for a two-day visit at the invitation of the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.

He will attend International Conference being convened in Ashgabat to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Turkmenistan’s Permanent Neutrality.

A number of Heads of State/Government have confirmed to attend the Conference.

During the visit, the Prime Minister would also participate in the ground breaking ceremony of Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) Gas Pipeline Project along with the President of Afghanistan and Turkmenistan and Vice President of India.

The Prime Minister’s visit will provide a good opportunity for Pakistan to re-affirm its support for Turkmenistan’s long-standing policy of permanent neutrality. The visit would also highlight the importance that Pakistan attaches to the TAPI Gas Pipeline Project and commitment to its early completion. Pakistan will be able to import 1325 MMcfd natural gas from Turkmenistan. Thus, this project will help in mitigating energy deficit in Pakistan.

In his bilateral interactions with the Turkmen President, the Prime Minister will share Pakistan’s perspective on important developments impinging on peace and security in the region and reiterate Pakistan’s keen desire to sustain and expand bilateral cooperation with Turkmenistan in trade, energy and defence. He will also hold a bilateral meeting with the President of Turkey.
