Prague, 26 February 1997 (RFE/RL) - Turkmen President Saparmurat Niyazov wrapped up a two-day visit to New Delhi by new signing bi-lateral agreements with India.

Today's agreements deal with cooperation in areas of economics, culture, health, communication and the environment. A special memorandum was also signed on 500-year celebrations in honor of Bayram Khan, a famous Eastern philosopher.

Experts from each country today continue discussions on combatting drug smuggling, international terrorism, and on air travel. Itar-tass says says the two sides are also discussing a planned pipeline to carry Turkmen gas across Afghanistan to Pakistan.

Turkmenistan and India signed five agreements yesterday, including one on avoiding double taxation. The sides also discussed the Afghanistan conflict.
