Parliamentary diplomacy of Turkmenistan

In different years of its history, the Turkmen parliament was called differently – the Supreme Council before gaining independence and the Mejlis after gaining it. At the same time, for all the years since its formation, the national Parliament of Turkmenistan has maintained its originality and legal culture and has developed the national parliamentary system. Parliament is a nationwide representative institution of the state, exercising legislative functions; it is the highest elected legislature. Parliamentarism is a system of the organisation and functioning of the supreme state power, characterised by the separation of the legislative and executive functions of power. The revival of effective parliamentary system in Turkmenistan began in 2007 and was associated with the reforms in all spheres of the society and state under the leadership of the respected Arkadag.

Dushak-Erekdag – one of the models of the Kopetdag Mountains

This is a remarkable place for botanists – a natural model of the Central Kopetdag Mountains, which is characterised by talus and stony-precipitous rocks, gentle grassy mountain slopes, narrow gorges with steep deep sides, plateau-like mountain peaks and intermountain dry steppe valleys. Its most familiar view is waterless, dry, as if breathing with heat in the summer sultry weather, high mountain ranges, which fascinate tourists with their inaccessibility and unique contrasts. For example, from the burning summer atmosphere of acclive slopes and lowlands with scorched vegetation and an abundance of thorns, you can move on to late spring on the intermountain plateau, where feather grass and fescue and couch grass vegetation blooms for a long time. The higher the mountains, the cooler the climate. Strong off-season winds sway these grasses, as if they passed in multidirectional frequent ridges along a rustling soft shiny base, abruptly breaking off from the edge of the sloping sides of the plateau down into echoing gorges, where insects buzz during the day, and cicadas monotonously “sing” at night. In the desert, summer quickly and imperceptibly absorbs all life and dissolves it in its boundless ocean of sands, where superheated air, dancing in the distance and creating a mirage over hot dunes, makes an indelible impression.

Human health is the highest value of our society and state

The President of Turkmenistan Participates in the Opening of a Multidisciplinary Hospital in the Town of Turkmenbashi Being on a festive trip to the Balkan velayat, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov took part in the opening ceremony of a multidisciplinary hospital for 400 patients, which replenished the constantly improving infrastructure of the domestic healthcare.

As the time of agzachar approached, the head of state, together with Haji Arkadag, arrived at the mosque. There, the Mufti of Turkmenistan recited the ayat in memory of the dear grandfather of the President of Turkmenistan, Myalikguly aga, praying to the Almighty for the repose of the soul of the deceased.

In spring without colds and ARVI

In the spring, our body, weakened during the long winter, is not always able to resist acute respiratory viral infections. That is why at this time of the year it is very important to pay attention to their prevention. The most effective way to prevent ARVI, recommended by the World Health Organisation, is vaccination.

Astragalus Blossoms in the Karakum Desert

In early spring, one can observe various astragalus species blossoming on the sand dunes, exhaling a subtle, exquisite delicate aroma. Less often, astragalus can be found at the foothills, where they do not “climb” high. The representatives of Astragalus alopecias that have fluffy spherical panicles-inflorescences are particularly beautiful; seven species are known, including Astragalus globiceps and Astragalus schahrudensis These large perennials up to 1 metre high with seven-centimetre inflorescences in diameter adorn flower beds. Astragalus macrobotrys with elongated inflorescences with pinkish-purple flowers that can be found in the sands has a peculiar form. The “inhabitant” of the Karakum Desert, Astragalus flexus blooms beautifully; its bright yellow large flowers form racemose inflorescences. The endemic gem of the nature of the Kopetdag Mountains is the cushion-shaped Astragalus podolobus. In the spring, during the blooming period, it resembles an impressive bunch of flowers – a fragrant pink-purple “ball” on the rocks, up to 80 centimetres in diameter. Some of astragalus species are attractive during the fruiting period. Astragalus chiwensis is quite extraordinary; it reaches 70 centimetres in height and diameter in wet years. Shaggy leaves and racemes of swollen beans give the shrub its originality. Astragalus sericopetalus is an endemic plant of the mountains covere

Pre­si­dent of Turk­me­nis­tan visi­ted an exhi­bi­tion of achievements of the union of in­dust­ria­lists and ent­rep­re­neurs

The Pre­si­dent of Turk­me­nis­tan Ser­dar Ber­di­mu­ha­me­dov visi­ted an exhi­bi­tion ti­med to coincide with the 14th an­niver­sa­ry of the Union of In­dust­ria­lists and Ent­rep­re­neurs and acquain­ted him­self with the ran­ge of pro­ducts and in­dust­rial goods ma­nu­factu­red by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the count­ry’s bu­si­ness circles. The develop­ment of the private sector of the na­tio­nal econo­my and sup­port for ent­rep­re­neu­rial ini­tia­tives are among the prio­ri­ties of the sta­te po­licy. In this con­text, gui­ded by best practices, par­ticular im­por­tance is at­tached to strengt­he­ning the po­si­tion of ent­rep­re­neurs­hip in the structu­re of the na­tio­nal econo­my, which opens up broad pros­pects for Turk­men bu­si­ness­men to achieve great re­sults in various fields, inclu­ding the sphe­re of the pro­ducti­on of fo­od and ot­her goods.

To pre­serve the me­mo­ry of ge­ne­ra­tions

Du­ring the inau­gu­ra­tion cere­mo­ny, the Pre­si­dent of Turk­me­nis­tan Ser­dar Ber­di­mu­ha­me­dov no­ted in his speech that mea­su­res would be ta­ken to care­ful­ly pre­serve and stu­dy his­to­rical and cul­tu­ral he­ri­ta­ge si­tes and to res­to­re his­to­rical and cul­tu­ral mo­nu­ments. The Sta­te Prog­ram­me for the care­ful treat­ment, pre­servation and stu­dy of ob­jects of the na­tio­nal his­to­rical and cul­tu­ral he­ri­ta­ge and for their inclu­sion in tou­rist rou­tes for 2022–2028, app­roved by the Decree of the Pre­si­dent of Turk­me­nis­tan, is a vivid con­fir­ma­tion of the words of the he­ad of sta­te sa­id at the inau­gu­ra­tion cere­mo­ny. This Sta­te Prog­ram­me covers a comp­lex of sta­tio­na­ry archaeo­lo­gical re­search and res­to­ra­tion activities plan­ned for his­to­rical and cul­tu­ral mo­nu­ments in al­most all velayats of the count­ry. It al­so provides for the con­ti­nua­tion of the work al­rea­dy be­gun on the stu­dy and pre­servation of ob­jects of his­to­rical and cul­tu­ral he­ri­ta­ge, and al­so gives a start to new, previous­ly non-con­ducted re­search.

Turk­me­nis­tan in the world in­for­ma­tion space

Having em­bar­ked on the path of in­novative develop­ment, Turk­me­nis­tan in­tends to expand coo­pe­ra­tion with the In­ter­na­tio­nal Te­lecom­mu­nication Union (ITU). In this con­necti­on, a Work Plan for in­te­racti­on with ITU for 2022 is being develo­ped. A cen­tu­ry and half ago, two do­zen count­ries, the most develo­ped at that ti­me, rea­li­sed that the furt­her develop­ment of com­mu­nications and the exchan­ge of in­for­ma­tion requi­red the develop­ment of univer­sal stan­dards and ag­ree­ments. This is how the In­ter­na­tio­nal Te­lecom­mu­nication Union was es­tab­lis­hed. To­day, ITU is the lea­ding UN agency in the field of in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­nication techno­lo­gies. Its work involves not on­ly 193 count­ries as mem­ber sta­tes, but al­so sector and as­sociate mem­bers and acade­mic or­ga­ni­sa­tions: private sector, scien­ti­fic and educatio­nal ins­ti­tu­tions and in­ter­na­tio­nal and re­gio­nal or­ga­ni­sa­tions. This is what the unique­ness of ITU li­es in, and this ma­kes it an ef­fective plat­form that brings to­get­her all par­ticipants in the ICT/te­lecom­mu­nications. ITU’s activities are ai­med at sup­por­ting count­ries in the imp­le­men­ta­tion of their ICT/te­lecom­mu­nication develop­ment stra­te­gies and expan­ding in­ter­na­tio­nal coo­pe­ra­tion in this di­recti­on.

Pro­fes­sion that Gives Joy

The­re is a pro­fes­sion – a flo­rist, which gives a go­od mo­od for peop­le. For as long as she can re­mem­ber, Sa­par­gul Mam­met­ku­liyeva, an ag­ro­no­mist at the green­hou­se comp­lex of the Pub­lic Uti­li­ties De­part­ment of the Ash­ga­bat Hya­kim­lik, has al­ways be­en sur­roun­ded by flo­wers and plants. It was so in Mag­tym­gu­ly et­rap, whe­re she spent her child­hood and in the sett­le­ment of Chan­dy­bil, whe­re she la­ter wor­ked as a mas­ter gar­de­ner for several years and at the foot­hills of the Ko­pet­dag Moun­tains, in a new green­hou­se comp­lex. In­te­res­ting­ly, the love of this won­der­ful pro­fes­sion and in fact, the way of li­fe, was ins­til­led in the crafts­wo­man by her fat­her, who for a long ti­me, un­til re­ti­re­ment, wor­ked as a fo­re­man in the nur­se­ry of the Gök Gu­şak Joint Stock Com­pa­ny. In­deed, fol­lo­wing the es­tab­lis­hed rhythm, Sa­par­gul be­gins her wor­king day by discus­sing the tasks of the cur­rent day with her friend­ly te­am that con­sists of 15 peop­le. And the­re are a lot of them: the checking of how seed­lings grow in special cas­set­tes for sub­sequent plan­ting in open ground, the se­pa­ra­tion of flo­wers by varie­ty and colour sche­me, the pre­pa­ra­tion of pot­ted flo­wers and much mo­re.

Smile to spring sun and nature

Spring is one of the most favourite seasons of the year for most people. The sun, warmth and the first green leaves can improve mood. Though it becomes much warmer in the spring, the risk of catching a cold at this time of the year is much higher than during other seasons. This is due both to seasonal changes in the human immune system and to the environmental factors which suppress the body’s natural defences. In the spring, the human immune system is often weakened substantially, also because of vitamin and other nutrient deficiencies. Therefore, our body is unable to actively fight colds and acute respiratory infections.
