SUBJECT: TURKMENISTAN: 2010 NTE REPLY ON THE ARAB LEAGUE
TRADE BOYCOTT OF ISRAEL

REF: A. STATE 118797
B. ASHGABAT 696

The Arab League Trade Boycott of Israel does not impact U.S.
firms or products in Turkmenistan (Ref A). U.S. branded
products are sold in Turkmenistan, although the majority are
not imported directly from the U.S. They are often produced
in Turkey or Russia and then imported into Turkmenistan. The
GOTX has not made any public calls to support the boycott of
trade with Israel. Israeli companies have operated in
Turkmenistan since 1993, including the Merhav Group which
undertakes projects for the Turkmen Government that range
from gas processing to agriculture. In addition, the Israeli
Government has diplomatic relations with Turkmenistan and
plans to open an embassy in Ashgabat in the near future (Ref
B).
