In connection with the latest events in the Central Asian region, the value settings of the UN General Assembly Resolution, which declared 2021 as the International Year of Peace and Trust, are gaining even greater significance. This document was unanimously adopted at the 106th plenary meeting of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly in 2019 at the initiative of the President of Turkmenistan and 73 UN member states were its co-authors. With his initiative, the President of Turkmenistan emphasises that peace and trust in relations among states are a key value that contributes to sustainable development, peace, security and respect for human rights.
Speaking about the relevance and topicality of the Resolution adopted by the Community of Nations, the head of Turkmenistan underlined peace and trust were exactly what humankind needed most of all, because at present these two inseparable concepts are becoming a key condition for cooperation and the ensuring of universal security and wellbeing. “Our initiative involves the development of specific measures aimed at reducing tension, peacefully, politically and diplomatically resolving disputes and contradictions and making responsible and balanced decisions in this regard,” the head of the Turkmen state said.
