Peculiarities of Neutrality status of the states

Permanent neutrality is the international legal status that has undertaken not to participate in any wars that are occurring or may occur in the future, and to refrain from actions that could involve such a state in war. In this regard, permanently neutral states do not take part in military-political alliances, building trust and cooperation between states. The legal confirmation of this status is the conclusion by the interested states of an appropriate international treaty with the participation in it of a state endowed with the status of permanent neutrality. The validity of such an agreement is not determined by any period — it is concluded for the entire future. According to its obligations, a permanently neutral state must comply with the rules of neutrality in the event of a military conflict between any states.

The President of Turkmenistan took part in the flower-laying ceremony at the Neutrality Monument

Today, the Turkmen people celebrate the International Day of Neutrality and the 28th anniversary of the adoption by the United Nations General Assembly of the Resolution on the permanent neutrality of Turkmenistan. This glorious holiday represents peace, stability, good friendly relations with all states, based on the principles of mutual respect and equal cooperation and, of course, the indestructible unity of the nation. Early in the morning, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov took part in a solemn ceremony of laying flowers at the Monument of Neutrality – a majestic memorial complex that personifies the Homeland’s unwavering commitment to the ideals of peace, creation and goodness.

December 12 is Neutrality Day in Turkmenistan

«7/24. tm» № 49 (184) 04.12.2023 December 12, 1995 is one of the important dates in the modern history of Turkmenistan. The adoption of the special Resolution «Permanent Neutrality of Turkmenistan» 27 years ago with the unanimous support of 185 UN Member States was a major event that had a positive impact on the political life of the planet.

Neutrality is a Model of Creative Humanism

The inexhaustible sources of the creative way of life of our people are commitment to a non-violent way of resolving tense situations and unity based on selfless love for humanity. The thinker of the early 19th century Niyazkuli at-Turkmeni writes, “A kind attitude towards people and wishes for peace are the adornment of any people, where faith in friendship and loyalty in friendship represent the basis of the moral power of the nation.” The neutral path of development is not an indifferent avoidance of emerging contradictions, but an active approach to resolving them, where restraint and non-interference are the conditions for the peaceful resolution of disputes and clashes. This position allows us to lay a strong foundation for peaceful and creative dialogue, where the ability to listen and be heard reigns. It is in this formula of humanism that a strong will and sincere commitment to action is developed for the sake of the peaceful resolution of all disagreements. The wise thinker and humanist poet of the 18th century Dovletmammet Azadi in his treatise Wagzy-Azat writes that confidential and frank dialogue serves for the sake of universal happiness and wellbeing.

«BUILD A CITY, and let its windows be wide...»

Although the poet wrote these lines about half a century ago, he seems to have a clear vision that high rise towering buildings will be constructed in his homeland in the future. The number of socially beneficial projects being carried out in the country, especially the transformations related to the construction of modern buildings and residential houses, is increasing every year. This is not the case with respect to one or several specific areas of the national economy and social system, but it produces positive results in relation to the performance of all structural sectors. We see it primarily in the high buildings that are glittering with light, which are the examples of all the developments and reforms. The architectural art of the hardworking Turkmen people, which creates a harmonious combination of modernity, elements of national art and classical styles, dates distant past. The house construction and amazing national art, which spread the fame of the Turkmens through out the world with the Jeitun culture, had been further improved, and are even to day actively applied in modern buildings and facilities. Our people, who set a white yurt and gave feasts for the guests with great hospitality in ancient times, today strike the imagination of world nations with their white marble buildings, and welcome the guests to discuss the solution to regional and international proble

Neutrality: Stability and Development of Turkmenistan

The emergence of the institution of neutrality has deep historical roots. It took shape over several centuries, but it developed the most in the 18th and especially in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Initially, neutrality was regarded as the right of states to neutral trade. However, under the influence of various factors, neutrality began to be viewed as a scientific category and as the essential institution of international law. The status of neutrality is enshrined in international law and in the legal system of a number of states. Turkmenistan is a country of ancient civilisations; historical sources testify to wide political and diplomatic cooperation of the ancestors of the Turkmen people with the Chinese and Romans, which resulted in the formation of a unique system of political balance in the vast territories of Asia. The main factors of the progress of the Turkmen states of antiquity and the Middle Ages were a wide openness to the world and a commitment to a continuous dialogue with other states and nations.

Neutrality is our pride

As is known, the International Day of Neutrality enhances the prestige of our beloved Motherland in the world as a country that follows the principles of peace, goodwill, humanity, prioritizes mutually beneficial cooperation with other countries and regions, and uses its favourable geopolitical and geoeconomic potential for the interests and development of all humankind. This holiday is widely celebrated at the state level to mark our good neighbourly relations and ancient principles of friendship. Based on the main principles of positive neutrality, Turkmenistan implements an active foreign policy aimed at the interests of the peoples in the region and the world. Adhering to the generally recognized norms of international law, equality, mutual respect, good neighbourliness and mutually beneficial cooperation, our country occupies a worthy place in the international community. Independent, permanently neutral Turkmenistan attaches great importance to strengthening and deepening political, economic and cultural relations established with other countries and prestigious international organisations, namely, the United Nations, the European Union, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.
