Japanese delegation set for Turkmenistan visit to discuss parliamentary cooperation

A Japanese parliamentary delegation, led by Toshiaki Endo, is scheduled to visit Turkmenistan for three days from May 12, with discussions aimed at strengthening inter-parliamentary cooperation and bilateral collaboration.

A Japanese parliamentary delegation, led by Toshiaki Endo, Chairman of the Japan-Turkmenistan Interparliamentary Friendship Group, is set to visit Turkmenistan for three days starting May 12, as reported by Trend.

Discussions centred on enhancing cooperation within the parliamentary friendship group, with Ambassador Sasaki expressing optimism that the visit would strengthen bilateral collaboration and communication through legislative channels.

During the meeting, the parties engaged in discussions centred around the primary areas of cooperation within the framework of the inter-parliamentary friendship group.

Ambassador Hiroshi Sasaki proposed that a visit by Japanese legislators would serve to bolster bilateral collaboration and facilitate communication through the respective legislative bodies of the two nations.

Additionally, the parties involved affirmed their ongoing readiness to bolster intergovernmental cooperation through parliamentary diplomacy, reinforce the legal foundations underpinning these relations, and facilitate the exchange of lawmaking experience.

Proposals were put forth to strengthen the inter-parliamentary friendship group between the two nations, establish youth ties, enhance the role of women in parliamentary relations, and achieve sustainable development in parliamentary cooperation.

It’s worth noting that in late February of this year, Dunyagozel Gulmanova, Speaker of the Parliament of Turkmenistan, had discussed the advancement of inter-parliamentary relations between the two countries with Fukushiro Nukaga, Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Japanese Parliament.
