The Turkmen president arrived in the Chinese capital Tuesday afternoon to attend a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

Hu said he believes that Berdymukhamedov's visit to China for the summit would strongly boost the development of bilateral ties.

Berdymukhamedov said as a neutral state, Turkmanistan is willing to be actively engaged in regional and trans-regional cooperation projects within the framework of the SCO under the precondition that they are in line with his country's national interests and foreign policy.

Turkmanistan-China relations have enjoyed a rather stable development over the past 20 years since the establishment of diplomatic ties and the two countries hold the same positions on many issues, he added.

Berdymukhamedov, invited by President Hu, will attend the 12th Meeting of the Council of Heads of Member States of the SCO slated for Wednesday and Thursday.
