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.

Success of the Turkmen chess player

The Turkmen chess player Meylis Annaberdiyev has won brilliant victories in the world of chess. The fact that he received the title of Grandmaster demonstrates the level of his skills. This decision was taken at the 1st FIDE Council meeting held in Abu Dhabi in April this year. Meylis Annaberdiyev has achieved impressive results. In this context, it should be noted that about 600 chess players from 7 countries and regions of the Republic of Türkiye took part in the 5th International Open Chess Tournament held by the International Chess Federation and Başkent University in Ankara, the Republic of Türkiye. The Turkmen chess player, Grandmaster Meylis Annaberdiyev won a silver medal at the tournament, which was organized in six categories. The results of our compatriot, who scored 6.5 points in the A category event, which included the highest level games, brought him to the second place.

The Turkmen athletes to take part in the international event

Twelve Turkmen athletes will take part in the 2022 Judo Grand Slam to be held in Tokyo, Japan, on December 3–4. In this context, it should be noted that 194 men and 125 women from 66 countries are expected to participate in this sports festival. The large event is a great opportunity for athletes to score points on the way to the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. That is why it is considered an important sports festival.

Advantages of physical exercises

Sports and an active life help to strengthen and protect the human health, as well as to prevent a number of dangerous diseases. Scientists mention these facts in their studies. Regular physical exercises have a positive effect on health and make life more beautiful. Physicians believe that just half an hour of exercises every day can prevent diseases of the cardiovascular system, excess weight, type 2 diabetes, improve appetite, mood, and sleep. As is known, physical activity does not necessarily mean training sessions on special equipment in gyms or doing any mode of sports. Not everyone has time for these activities. Changing some of daily habits is enough to increase physical activity. If you're not in a hurry to get to your workplace using public transport, you can get off the bus a stop or two away and walk the rest of the way. Or you can choose to take the stairs instead of using the lift to go up. Even playing with children in the fresh air is a beneficial form of physical activity.

Magnificent results

Our compatriots won two gold medals at the Belt Wrestling World Cup held in Kazan, the Republic of Tatarstan (the Russian Federation). The Turkmen wrestler Derya Abdyev triumphed in the 90-kilogramme weight class event. Our compatriot Hojamyrat Suhanov competed in the 57-kilogramme weight class event and won another gold medal. Abdyresul Durdyev, a student of Turkmen State Institute of Physical Education and Sports, and Palvan Gurbangeldiyev, a student of the Institute of Engineering and Transport Communications of Turkmenistan, earned silver medals in the 62-kilogramme and 100-kilogramme weight class events respectively.

Turkmenistan is a modern centre of tourism

A vivid example of the development of the international tourism in Turkmenistan is related to the Avaza National Tourist Zone.

A prerequisite for health

Health enables people to feel joy, happiness, pleasure, and bliss of life. Thus, we should value health first to live a good and prosperous life. The most effective way to strengthen health is to do sports, to work hard, and to take a walk in the fresh air. Scientists believe that active people tend to have the better blood circulation and the lower body fat percentage. Physical and mental health is the main wealth and treasure of people. As is known, if health is strong, it is not difficult to obtain other resources.

Advantages of physical culture

Physical health of a person is a natural state of an organism caused by normal functioning of all its organs and systems. It is an invaluable wealth for the entire society. Training sessions and sports events at the institutions of higher education prepare students for life and contribute to their harmonious physical development. They train the body, make health stronger, improve physical qualities, abilities and skills, and create favourable conditions for a long and active life. Moreover, they contribute to the education of such personality traits as morality, aesthetics, hard work, and ensure intellectual development.

Our Motherland succeeds in sports

Achievements of the Turkmen athletes demonstrate that Turkmenistan has become a sports power. In this context, we witness good news and events that provoke the pride of our people. The President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov notes that physical culture and sports are of great importance in strengthening the principles of a healthy lifestyle and in educating hardworking, smart and patriotic young people in the years of independence. Thus, sports mean health. In turn, health means the spiritual and physical beauty of a person, the basis for a healthy mind and spirit. Sports strengthen the human health and increase the passion for life and the ability to work. That is why Turkmenistan conducts impressive work to promote the principles of a healthy lifestyle, physical culture and health, and to develop high-level sports.

Respect for our national values

On October 29, the second meeting of the Turkmen Alabay International Association was held in Ashgabat and was dedicated to the Turkmen Alabay Day.

The experience gained by the younger generations in the field of sports and physical culture is revealed in practice thanks to the national sports events.

The Turkmen alabays are our national pride

When people read the Turkmen Alabay book by our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, they realize that our ancestors have always considered alabays as loyal companions and friends.

This valuable book provides important information about the role of alabays in the life, folklore, literature and creativity of the Turkmen people. The Turkmen proverbs about aim and happiness, namely, ‘a horse is an aim’, ‘dog brings happiness’, ‘my dog is my happiness’, prove that our people saw aims in horses and happiness in alabays. Thus, along with the antiquity, bravery, cleverness, courage, and intelligence of this breed, the book provides many historical sources to reflect the dogs’ loyalty and faithfulness and to increase the love for the Turkmen alabay, which is considered a faithful and loyal friend nowadays.

Alabays are our national pride

Our national values provoke pride and inspire great respect in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state.
