Universities to welcome more Turkmenistan students

Belarus is ready to train more students from Turkmenistan and provide accommodation for them. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement at a meeting with Turkmenistan President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov on 8 October, reports BelTA.

“The Turkmen side would like to expand the presence of its students here, particularly in view of the events in Ukraine. We have to do as much as we can,” the Belarusian leader said during the expanded participation negotiations.

The Belarusian side suggested allocating land possibly in the student village to build a hall of residence for students from Turkmenistan and sport facilities nearby. The presidents agreed that a relevant project will be developed and construction should start after the new premises of the Turkmen embassy in Minsk are built.
