The Year 2020 — a Significant Milestone in the History of the Country
Time runs fast. So the year 2020 is over. It was the 29th year since the declaration of our independence and the 25th one since the acquisition of the status of permanent neutrality. Though not years, but accomplishments measure the full-blooded life of Turkmenistan as a sovereign neutral state. Having absorbed many significant events, 2020 will also enter another bright page in the country’s chronicle. By these milestones, our descendants and future historians will judge what we have achieved. And I would like to hope that, following the well-known truth “the future is better seen at a distance”, they will appreciate the great achievements of the Era of Might and Happiness of independent neutral Turkmenistan under the leadership of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. Among these events, a special place is occupied by the publication of the book by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov Turkmenistan – the Home of Neutrality. The work of the national leader is an important contribution to the study of national origins and the historical significance of Turkmen neutrality as a phenomenon in international relations.
