The head of MFA of Turkmenistan Rashid Meredov thanked the Russian authorities for the assistance during negotiations with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow.

According to the Turkmen official, appropriate medical products will help the Central Asian country in the fight against pandemic. He also expressed gratitude to the Russian side for the previously delivered 186 thousand test systems (120 thousand of them were a part of a humanitarian aid).
