This year is special for all of us – the 30th anniversary of the independence of the Turkmen state and 140th anniversary of the foundation of Ashgabat. Today, Turkmenistan is a self-sufficient and dynamically developing state. Its successes astonish the whole world. Our land has been multinational and hospitable for centuries. Representatives of different nationalities have lived here in friendship and concord for many centuries.
Over the years of independence, our beloved city of Ashgabat has also developed. It is now by right called the “pearl of Asia”. On the eve of one of the most favourite and traditional Turkmen holidays, Ashgabat Day, there is an opportunity to sum up the way covered and to open a new page in history, which will be even brighter, fuller and more interesting.
