The establishment of peace and trust is exactly what humanity needs most of all at present, because today these two inseparable concepts are becoming the main condition for cooperation and development.

This go­od news has spread all over the world, rai­sing even hig­her the aut­ho­ri­ty of our Mot­her­land and the lea­der of the na­tion Gurbanguly Ber­di­mu­ha­me­dov.

Neut­ra­li­ty – the ba­sis of the na­tio­nal idea

In his new bo­ok The Spi­ri­tual World of the Turk­men Peop­le, the res­pected Pre­si­dent Gurbanguly Ber­di­mu­ha­me­dov no­tes that the es­sence of li­fe, first of all, is ba­sed on the es­tab­lish­ment of the value of a per­son, the­re­fo­re, princip­les, the quin­tes­sence of which is concern for peop­le, are rai­sed on the pe­des­tal to­day. The mot­to “The sta­te is for the peop­le!” is an expres­sion of the es­sence and ma­in cour­se of sta­te po­licy of our dis­tin­guis­hed Pre­si­dent. And this app­roach is decisive in solving ba­sic social prob­lems. The de­ter­mi­na­tion of care for a per­son as a key di­recti­on of the sta­te po­licy and the focus of all socioecono­mic prog­ram­mes on en­su­ring the pros­pe­rous li­fe for citi­zens are con­di­tio­ned by the de­si­re to achieve comp­re­hen­sive prog­ress and to po­si­tively inf­luence the po­li­tical, spi­ri­tual, mo­ral, cul­tu­ral and hu­ma­ni­ta­rian sphe­res of society.

That is why along with the ma­te­rial li­fe, hu­man­kind has al­ways at­tached great im­por­tance to the spi­ri­tual and mo­ral being, which was and re­mains
