Turkmenistan is Among the States Exploring Space

These days, many world agencies, ahead of each other, with the mark “hot news” reported that “Oleg Kononenko set a world record for total time spent in space”, “The Hero of Turkmenistan and Russia set a record for spending time in space”, “A native of Turkmenistan set world record for total stay in space” and the like. Yes, quite many people from different countries have already flown into space, and the fact that a native of Turkmenistan is making his fifth flight and has set a world record of the total stay in space is of the greatest importance for sovereign Turkmenistan. “We in Turkmenistan are proud that our compatriot, born and raised in the ancient Turkmen land, became an outstanding space explorer and reached hitherto unprecedented milestones in his noble profession. Being the first is always honourable and at the same time not easy, since leadership is, first of all, a great responsibility before society, the country, and in your case, before the entire world.” These words, addressed by the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Chairman of the Halk Maslahaty of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov to the commander of the cosmonaut corps of the Roscosmos State Space Corporation, pilot-cosmonaut, Hero of Turkmenistan O.D.

One of the priority vectors of the foreign-policy strategy of neutral Turkmenistan, initiated by the National Leader of the Turkmen people Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and being successfully implemented by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, is the development of fruitful international cooperation, in which great importance is attached to humanitarian relations. In connection with the current situation in the energy sphere of the Kyrgyz Republic, the President of Turkmenistan issued an order according to which for humanitarian aid, 2 thousand tonnes of liquefied natural gas were sent to the Kyrgyz Republic in February 2024 as a sign of friendship and fraternity. Performing such noble actions is one of the important priorities of our state policy.

Resources for Industry

The oil refining industry is the crucial component of Turkmenistan’s economy.

In accordance with the Programme of the Development of the Oil and Gas Industry of Turkmenistan until 2030, namely the efficient use of hydrocarbon resources, the deep refining of oil and the manufacture of competitive and eco-friendly petroleum products, work is underway to manufacture high-quality oil and gas chemical products.

Clean Water for People’s Health

Speaking at the recent online government meeting, the velayat hyakims reported to the President of Turkmenistan on the measures taken to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of heating systems in social facilities and to supply electricity, natural gas and drinking water to local populations. In this context, the editorial staff decided to calculate how much human labour and energy resources must be used to support technological equipment and processes and how many hours were spent by complex multi-stage mechanisms and engineering devices so that our homes have clean and safe drinking water. To do this, I had to visit the country’s largest drinking water plant, located in the Ak Bugday etrap, Ahal velayat, that meets the water needs of Ashgabat. The plant was built by Turkish company Polimeks in 2010. Its capacity is 250,000 cubic metres of drinking water a day. Two water plants, including the first facility of that kind with a capacity of 100,000 cubic metres a day, built in previous years, are located nearby. It was built in 1969 and is still in operation. The enhancement of production capacity and the expansion of the administrative boundaries of the capital during the years of independence necessitated the construction of additional water intake and water treatment facilities and the establishment of the Ashgabatvodokanal Trust to manage them in 1995; it was renamed

This trait is reflected in the traditions of the people. Along with hospitality and benevolence, humanism, mercy and charity unite people, testifying to their spiritual wealth and the need of the soul to do good deeds and help others. An example of preserving the age-old national traditions of kindness and mercy is the activities of the Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov Charitable Foundation for Aid to Children in Need of Guardianship, which embodies such noble principles as humanism and mercy, showing special care for children and adolescents left without the care of parents or persons replacing them.

Tourism without Borders

The priority vectors of Turkmenistan’s foreign policy include the promotion of mutually beneficial cooperation with the Middle East countries. The United Arab Emirates takes a special place among these countries. The working visit of the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Chairman of the Halk Maslahaty Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov to the United Arab Emirates on January 4-5, 2024 was fruitful in expanding the bilateral cooperation. The talks resulted in reaching an agreement, including on the launch of air flights between the capitals of the two countries – Ashgabat and Abu Dhabi. The first Ashgabat–Abu Dhabi–Ashgabat flight was performed on January 5. This event aroused interest among many citizens of Turkmenistan who would like to visit Abu Dhabi as tourists. In an interview with an NT correspondent, a tourism specialist at the Haýýat Syýahat Travel Company Yana Kazakova spoke how best to plan a tourist trip to Abu Dhabi.
