His Excellency
Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow
President of the Republic of Turkmenistan
Ashgabat

Dear Mr. President:

I want to express my gratitude to you and your government for the assistance and cooperation you offered as relocations from Afghanistan were underway in August and September. Your timely help in expeditiously granting overflight and refueling clearances and facilitating passenger transfers to onward destinations was greatly appreciated.

The bilateral relationship between Turkmenistan and the United States is important, and I am glad to see it strengthening year after year as we work together in support of climate action, regional security, human rights, and economic opportunity.

The United States remains steadfast in support of Turkmenistan’s sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity.

Sincerely,
JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.
