The Turkmen officials told Berdimuhamedov of the existing situation in Ashgabat, including the progress of construction work, measures taken to ensure industrial infrastructure development, modernization of the road system, improvement of green belts and parks and measures taken to accelerate the construction of the Bereket-Etrek of the North-South international main line.
