Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov has arrived in Armenia on a two-day visit.

The Turkmen leader held talks scheduled with his Armenian counterpart, Serzh Sarkisian, as well as other senior Armenian officials.

Officials say discussions were focusing on trade and energy, with several agreements due to be signed.

A topic likely to get extra attention is a Turkmen offer to supply Armenia with electricity through Iran's energy grid, an idea first proposed in 2010.
