"We will discuss all the issues that are of interest for bilateral relations, namely, economy, social sphere, the issues of interaction in the humanitarian field, our international activity," Putin said.

"Turkmenistan and the Russian Federation are strategic partners," Berdimuhamedov said.

"You are doing a lot today in the international arena in the name of stability and security, and to strengthen friendship between Turkmenistan and the Russian Federation, so I would like to thank you for this huge personal contribution," the Turkmen president said.
