Kabul (BNA) Turkmenistan is developing humanitarian aid program for Afghanistan for the years of 2020-2022, Trend reports with reference to the Turkmen Government.
The document is being prepared in the context of the peaceful development of Afghanistan and was discussed at a government meeting, Turkmenistan State News Agency reported.
For many years Afghanistan has been receiving electricity and liquefied gas from Turkmenistan at preferential prices in the direction of the Imamnazar-Andkhoy and Serhetabat-Herat power transmission lines. The Rabatkashan-Kalainau border power line has also been commissioned to supply Turkmen electricity to the northern regions of Afghanistan.
Turkmenistan supports the implementation of a number of regional infrastructure projects involving Afghanistan. In particular, Ashgabat is working on the implementation of projects through Afghanistan’s territory, such as the construction of a railway to Tajikistan and a pipeline to Pakistan and India.
The projects on the use of Afghanistan’s territory as a transit route for the supply of Turkmen electricity are also being considered.
