Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, which have big hydrocarbon reserves, stand for diversifying energy flows. This is exemplified by the implementation of the project on the Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Kazakhstan-China gas pipeline, commissioned in 2009.

Ashgabat is ready to intensify the cooperation within the project on the supply of electricity from Central Asia to South Asia along the Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Tajikistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan route.

The project on the creation of the Uzbekistan – Turkmenistan – Iran – Oman transport route is also being discussed. This will greatly increase the international transit freight flows and ensure a new communication corridor to the world markets.
