Sport on the international arena
In the modern world, sports cooperation is regarded as an important humanitarian concept, considering its significant contribution to strengthening peace and friendship. This contribution can be explained by the fact that the venues for sports events become a meeting place for coaches, athletes and sports fans from different countries, a centre of friendship, inspiration and support. Following the principles of permanent neutrality, Turkmenistan expands its bilateral and multilateral cooperation with international organizations and countries in the field of sport. In particular, our country encourages cooperation with the International Olympic Committee, the Olympic Council of Asia, the United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace, the UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport, the World Health Organization, the World Anti-Doping Agency, as well as the international and regional sports organizations.
