The President of Turkmenistan spoke about the priorities of the country's foreign policy

The intensification of interaction with the United Nations and its specialized structures is a key vector of the foreign policy strategy of Turkmenistan. The President of Turkmenistan stated this while speaking at the Dovlet maslahaty of the country.

According to the Turkmen leader, an exceptional experience in the history of international relations and diplomacy has been accumulated in this regard. This year alone, at the plenary sessions of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly, on the initiative of Turkmenistan, a number of documents were adopted. In addition, this year Turkmenistan was elected a member of the UN Commission on International Trade Law for the period 2022-2028. Turkmenistan has also received the status of an “acceding country” to the World Trade Organization. This will strengthen the country's position in the field of foreign trade, enhance its international image as a reliable and responsible partner, attract foreign investment, and expand fruitful cooperation with the WTO.

The head of state noted that in September of this year, which is held under the motto “The epoch of the people with Arkadag” and coincides with a significant date - the 30th anniversary of Turkmenistan's membership in the Community of Nations, the 77th session of the UN General Assembly is being held, at which the priority positions of Turkmenistan will be made public to achieve great goals. They contain a call for the joint solution of urgent problems, the strengthening of global peace and security.

Serdar Berdimuhamedov emphasized that the Turkmen state strives to successfully implement these measures and considers dialogue on various issues as part of relations and common actions based on multilateralism, constructivism and equality, and as a factor in achieving peace and security on the planet. “In this regard, promoting the philosophy of trust-based dialogue in international relations, following the principle “Dialogue is a guarantee of peace”, our country plans to put forward new initiatives”, -the head of state said.

The head of state also noted that Turkmenistan has accumulated solid experience in establishing balanced interaction with states and leading associations of the world and developing completely new effective ways and approaches for international cooperation.
