Bishkek (AKIpress) - Turkmen government Construction of an energy corridor in Central Asia is to enter a new stage as Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli called for further energy cooperation with Turkmenistan during his visit to the country, China Daily reported.

China will closely cooperate with Turkmenistan in further advancing construction of natural gas pipelines linking the two countries and jointly boost safe transportation of energy, Zhang said when meeting with President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov.

He said China is ready to deepen trade and economic cooperation with Turkmenistan, which has given high priority to natural gas programs.
