On May 16, 2024, within the framework of the 10th meeting of the National Commissions for UNESCO of the member countries of the International Organization of Turkic Culture (TURKSOY) in Ashgabat, a meeting was held between the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan, Chairman of the National Commission of Turkmenistan for UNESCO Rashid Meredov with the Chairman of the National Commission of the Republic of Türkiye for UNESCO Öcal Oguz.
