Besides TAPI, Turkmenistan Working-On Humanitarian Aid Program For Afghanistan

Turkmenistan is working on a humanitarian aid program for Afghanistan for the years of 2020-2022 according to Trend with reference to the Turkmen Government.

The document is being prepared in the context of the peaceful development of Afghanistan and was discussed at a government meeting, Turkmenistan State News Agency reported.

For many years Afghanistan has been receiving electricity and liquefied gas from Turkmenistan at preferential prices in the direction of the Imamnazar-Andkhoy and Serhetabat-Herat power transmission lines.

The Rabatkashan-Kalainau border power line has also been commissioned to supply Turkmen electricity to the northern regions of Afghanistan.

Turkmenistan supports the implementation of a number of regional infrastructure projects involving Afghanistan. In particular, Ashgabat is working on the implementation of projects through Afghanistan’s territory, such as the construction of a railway to Tajikistan and a pipeline to Pakistan and India.

As per latest reports, Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline project was progressing as per the “timelines” agreed among the member countries. “The planned flow of non-compressed gas from the TAPI gas pipeline project is December 2023,” according to an official document available with APP.

Tapi is planned to be 1,814 km long, of which 214 km will run through Turkmenistan, 774 km through Afghanistan, and 826 km through Pakistan to the border with India.
