According to the statement made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan, representatives from Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Moldova, Czech Republic, Tajikistan and Russia and the Railway Cooperation Organization Committee attended the meeting held in the capital Ashgabat.
At the meeting, which was held for the first time in Turkmenistan, issues related to ensuring the competitiveness of transit freight transportation by rail were discussed.
Emphasizing the importance of holding the meeting in Turkmenistan, which is one of the key member countries of the Railways Cooperation Organization and which has an important strategic position in transportation from Europe to Asia, it was emphasized that it would contribute to increasing and diversifying the transportation volume in the north-south and east-west transportation corridors.
