Turkey and Turkmenistan have signed an agreement on cooperation for the supply of Turkmen natural gas.

The accord was signed by officials from both governments in Ashgabat on May 30 during a visit by Turkish President Abdullah Gul, who was meeting with Turkmenistan’s President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov.

Both leaders also were expected to sign other bilateral accords during Gul’s three-day visit, which began a day earlier.

Gul, who was welcomed to Turkmenistan with a military parade, has been awarded the country's highest state medal.

On May 31, Gul was expected to visit the Akhal-Teke horse farm on the southeastern edge of Ashgabat and to meet with Turkish entrepreneurs working in Turkmenistan.
