The meeting was held against the background of intensification of Turkmen-Saudi ties in various spheres. Earlier, the Deputy Minister of Investment of Saudi Arabia for Investor Relations, Badr Al-Badr, visited Ashgabat on a working visit.The main topic of his visit was the work of the joint intergovernmental commission on trade and economic cooperation.

In February this year, the national air carrier Turkmenistan launched a direct flight from Ashgabat to the Saudi city of Jeddah, which should contribute to the growth of passenger traffic and tourism between the two countries.

Also in January, the Office of the Mufti of Turkmenistan and Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Hajj and Umrah signed an agreement for Turkmen pilgrims to perform Hajj in 2024, strengthening close religious and cultural ties.

It is obvious that Turkmenistan and Saudi Arabia strive to increase multidisciplinary cooperation in all areas in the spirit of mutual understanding and friendship.
