Further strengthening of bilateral inter-parliamentary relations was an important topic of Monday's telephone conversation between Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty Milli Gengesh of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and Chairman of the Senate of Pakistan Muhammad Sadiq Sanjrani, TDH reports.

As stated, at present, Turkmenistan and Pakistan are actively cooperating in the political, diplomatic, trade, economic, cultural and humanitarian spheres.
