India News: SAMARKHAND: External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday met foreign minister of Turkmenistan Rasit Meredow on the sidelines of the India-Central.
Officials said the India-Central Asia Dialogue, with the participation of Afghanistan, is expected to take India's engagement with all the countries of the region to a new level.
India's position was enunciated by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj at the historic India-Central Asia Dialogue.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Turkmenistan in July 2015 during which a number of documents were signed between the two sides. It was a historic visit given that an Indian Prime Minister had visited Turkmenistan after 20 years.
This was part of a joint statement issued at the end of the first ever meeting of the India-Central Asia Dialogue which also saw the participation of Afghanistan at the ministerial level in Samarkand.
