The main goal of the Forum, held in Turkmen, Russian and English, was to consider the role of the media in further strengthening international cooperation.

The great attention paid by the Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov to the level of culture and education of our people and the large-scale policy based on the principle “The state is for the people!”, continues now under the leadership of Serdar Berdimuhamedov, who underscored the importance of further efforts in popularising worldwide the cultural heritage of the Turkmen people and intensifying international cooperation in this sphere.

Sea of Peace, Stability and Partnership

Since 2006, five Caspian Sea states, including Turkmenistan have observed the Caspian Sea Day on August 12. International meetings, scientific conferences, roundtables of environmental scientists, youth events and environmental actions are held to mark this date. Turkmenistan that is committed to maintaining peace and cooperation in the Caspian Sea region promotes a constructive dialogue based on respect for national interests of all parties and joint efforts in the implementation of promising regional projects on the entire spectrum of Caspian Sea issues. The illustrative examples include the Caspian Environment Programme (CEP), which was implemented in several stages from 1998 to 2010. The main outcome of the Programme is the adoption of the Framework Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the Caspian Sea (Tehran Convention), which for a long time remained the only legal document obligatory for all the Caspian Sea states (the Caspian Sea Day marks the adoption of the Tehran Convention). One of the proposals of our country is to revive the CEP in a new format, taking into account modern realities and the newly adopted five-sided documents, in particular, the Convention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea.

Wings of the Soul of the Turkmen People

Quite recently, my colleagues and I had to make a trip towards the Kopetdag Mountains. We had driven already a decent distance from the city, when we saw an amazing miracle – horses grazing on the plain. We clung to the window to get a better view and to enjoy the beautiful Ahalteke horses. The entire history of the Turkmen people is linked inextricably with these amazing, noble and grateful horses. Their affection for a man, devotion and courage, fidelity and understanding have become the crucial factors of love and respect of the Turkmen people for the horses. Our ancestors, who created the Ahalteke horse breed many centuries ago, put their heart and soul into it and were ready to give their lives for their impeccable creation.
