Speaking to reporters while meeting Nurberdiyeva, Cemil Cicek said that "as the parliaments of two brotherly nations, we need to get into close cooperation".
"Turkey and Turkmenistan could cooperate in international platforms as well," Cicek stressed.
"Close cooperation between our parliaments is crucial for our countries and regional peace," Cicek underlined.
"The cooperation protocol we will sign between our parliaments today is highly important for mutual share of knowledge and experience, friendship, peace and brotherhood," Cicek also said.
