“We have also established a confidential dialogue with Turkmenistan in the field of security, within the framework of which representatives of the competent departments exchange assessments regarding common threats and challenges,” Rudenko said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

Thus, he answered the question of whether they are maintaining contacts with Turkmenistan against the background of the aggravation of the situation in Afghanistan.

Earlier Rudenko informed that Russia will help Tajikistan free of charge in strengthening the Tajik-Afghan border.
