Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov have attended the opening of a new road bridge over the Amu Darya, the contractor for the construction of which was Ukraine's Altcom, the press service of the Ukrainian president has reported, Ukrinform reports.

"There's a great symbolic significance of the new bridge that connected not only two banks of the Amu Darya, but also the hearts and souls of Ukrainian and Turkmen partners. This is a clear example of friendship and fruitful cooperation between the two countries," Yanukovych said.

He said that the opening of this bridge would be of great importance in the context of Turkmenistan's integration into global transportation corridors - the restoration of the historical Silk Road.

Berdimuhamedov, in turn, said that Ukraine and Turkmenistan have rich experience of cooperation, an example of which is dozens of implemented joint projects in various fields. The Turkmen president said that the bridge constructed "under the latest engineering technology" was a good example of such cooperation.
