The National Leader of the Turkmen people, Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, made a speech at the third Antalya Diplomatic Forum, voicing the position of Turkmenistan in resolving global economic and humanitarian issues.

As noted, the modern world poses a number of issues to countries and governments that affect not only politics, economics and law, but also ethical, legal norms and relations of honor and dignity.

To maintain political security, sustainable and economic development, it is necessary to maximally involve the peoples and states of the planet, regardless of their historical role, population size, gross domestic product, military potential or level of technological development.

In this regard, Turkmenistan’s position is firm and clear: such an issue in such a controversial time can and should be resolved through global efforts, based on the norms of international law and the UN Charter. Turkmenistan, as a responsible member of the world community, assumes obligations towards achieving this goal, emphasized Chairman of the Khalk Maslakhaty Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.

The potential of neutrality and preventive diplomacy was named as the main tool in carrying out these tasks. It was noted that neutrality can become a positional springboard for healthy and responsible forces, individual countries or an alliance of states, which makes it possible to resolve conflict situations and demonstrate that emerging disagreements, no matter how complex and prolonged they may be, can be resolved through peaceful methods and negotiations.

In his speech, Hero-Arkadag recalled the most significant international initiatives of Turkmenistan, including the Global Security Strategy under the auspices of the Community of Nations and proposals to create a Group of Friends of Neutrality at the UN, as well as the UN Regional Center for Technologies Related to Climate Change in Central Asia. As for the activities of the UN Regional Center for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia, headquartered in Ashgabat, it can rightfully become an example of a systematic approach to resolving conflicts and overcoming difficult situations, both existing and potential.

National Leader of the Turkmen people Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov also touched upon the issue of growing global influence of countries with economies in transition, highlighted the priority areas of Turkmenistan’s strategic course in the field of energy partnership, and focused on our country’s initiatives to develop global transport infrastructure and combat climate change.

At the end of his speech, Hero-Arkadag confirmed the readiness of our country to direct the neutrality and accumulated experience of a peacemaker towards making its contribution in the name of the interests of peace and the harmonious development of mankind.

Thus, the events of the past week once again became clear evidence of the successful implementation of the strategy, implemented under the leadership of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, in accordance with the principles “The State is for the People!”, “The Motherland is the Motherland only with the people!” The state is a state only with the people!”, increasing the international authority of the Fatherland as a country that is steadily developing in the political and economic aspects.
