Development of cultural-humanitarian ties – among the priorities of cooperation of Turkmenistan and Iran

During the Turkmen-Iranian Inter-MFA consultations that took place on the 8th of April in Ashgabat, the cultural-humanitarian cooperation was considered in detail.

The parties expressed interest in the arrangement of joint cultural events, including those in face-to-face format as soon as the restrictive measures related to the global pandemic allow.  In particular, the delegations discussed the preparations to the 300th birthday anniversary of the Turkmen poet-philosopher Makhtumkhuli Fragi, including the opportunities of hosting joint events timed to the date.  

Also, the positive experience of cooperation between the regions of two countries was noted. The parties agreed to work on the development of contacts on science, education and medicine between Turkmenistan and Iran.
