ASHGABAT: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Thursday said implementation of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline project was beneficial for the entire region, with Afghanistan alone to get $1 billion as transit fee and royalty.

Talking to the media following his meeting with Turkmenistan President Gurbanguly Berdimuha-medov, the foreign minister said the project was expected to create 2,000 new employment opportunities.

The foreign minister said that the TAPI project was discussed in detail with the Turkmen president, wherein he reiterated Pakistan’s commitment to enhance “economic connect” through various projects including TAPI.

He expressed satisfaction that the recent views expressed by Afghanistan showed the country’s intent to favour the implementation of TAPI project.

Pakistan wants to strengthen economic ties with Turkmenistan: FM Qureshi

Qureshi mentioned the warm sentiments expressed by the President of Turkmenistan for Pakistan which had recognized the independence and respected its sovereignty.

On Afghanistan’s evolving situation, he said Pakistan emphasized on the proposal of collective efforts of neighbouring countries to find a way out to peace.

Any instability would have a negative impact on Pakistan and other neighbours, he added.

He said in near future, convening of a meeting of foreign ministers from neighbouring states was under consideration to discuss the Afghan situation.

He said Pakistan and Turkmenistan would continue collaboration with special representatives from both sides to hold meetings on strengthening ties.

President Gurbanguly welcomed Foreign Minister Qureshi and remarked that Turkmenistan considered Pakistan an important country.

He reaffirmed that Turkmenistan was ready to further strengthen its ties with Pakistan in all areas of mutual interests.
