Turkmenistan President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov has met with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) President Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu to discuss the prospects of cooperation as part of the Turkmenistan’s national civil aviation development program for 2012-2030.
Under the said program, new air hubs are built in the Turkmen capital and in regions of the country; the existing airports, terminals and infrastructure facilities are being reconstructed, which would help in the development of economy, strengthening and expanding interstate relations.
Far-reaching measures are conducted in line with generally accepted standards and norms of the ICAO.
A topic that was talked about at the said meeting was the possibility of forging partnerships regarding projects on establishing an international transit and transport hub at the crossroads of the most important trade routes of the continent.
In this regard, Aliu stressed the importance of the UN General Assembly resolution on the role of transport and transit corridors in confirming international cooperation for sustainable development.
