The Embassy of Turkmenistan is organizing scientific practical conference

Author: 16.04.2018 | Türkmenistan
The Embassy of Turkmenistan in Ukraine is planning to organize the International Scientific and Practical Conference "The role of Turkmenistan in the development of international transit and transport cooperation in the context of the announced year "Turkmenistan is the heart of the Great Silk Road".

It should be noted that one of the priority vectors of Turkmenistan's foreign policy is the expansion of multilateral cooperation on strategic issues in the transport sector. As you know, on the 20-th of December, 2017 at the 74th meeting of the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution "Strengthening the links between all modes of transport to achieve the goals of sustainable development", submitted by Turkmenistan. It is noteworthy that 74 states, including Ukraine, acted as co-authors of the resolution.

Recalling its resolution 69/213, "The role of transport and transit corridors in promoting international cooperation for sustainable development" of the 19-th of December 2014 and its resolution 70/197 "Towards full interaction among all modes of transport in order to promote the creation of sustainable multimodal transit corridors "of the 22-nd of December, 2015, it is necessary to emphasize the efforts of the Government of Turkmenistan in connection with the first United Nations Global Conference on Sustainable Transport, which was organized in Ashgabat on 26-27 November 2016. While acclaiming with satisfaction the Ashgabat Declaration of Commitments and Recommendations on the Policy of the Global Conference and taking note of the Ashgabat Declaration adopted at the High-level International Conference on the Role of Transit Transport Corridors in International Cooperation, Turkmenistan invited the Secretary-General to consider the possibility of convening another Global Conference on sustainable transport to ensure the implementation of the objectives of the first conference and notes that such Conference will be funded by extrabudgetary resources.


Today we are talking about the construction of an extensive, combined transport infrastructure and transit that covers the continental Eurasia with access to the sea terminals of the Black Sea and Baltic regions, South and South-East Asia, and the Middle East. In this connection, attention was paid to the possibilities of a large seaport being built in Turkmenbashi city.

In the beginning of 2018, President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of the country expressed gratitude to the states that sponsored the above resolution, as well as to the countries that supported it. The head of state instructed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan, based on this resolution of the UN General Assembly, to submit proposals for the next Global Conference on Sustainable Transport in Ashgabat or in the national tourist zone Avaza.

As a contribution of Turkmenistan to the solution of these issues, the construction of the Turkmen section of the international railroad Kazakhstan-Turkmenistan-Iran - the most important link of the North-South transport corridor - has been completed. Also among the important regional transport projects there is the railway Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Tajikistan, the construction of which started in June 2013. On the 28-th of November, 2016, an official ceremony of opening a section of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan railway was carried out. In addition to that, a high-level quadripartite meeting was held in the framework of the forum on the creation of the transport corridor Uzbekistan-Turkmenistan-Iran-Oman. This ambitious project is designed to further enhance the mutually beneficial trade and economic cooperation between the countries of Central Asia and the Middle East.

Today the history of the Great Silk Road is attractive because making all of us turn to the origins of our national culture, it promotes understanding of other cultures, for the whole essence of the historical process that created and supported the Silk Road is in exchange, in the dialogue of cultures.

As you know, a new book by President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov was published: "Turkmenistan is the heart of the Great Silk Road". It is no accident that the title of the new work of the head of state - "Turkmenistan - the heart of the Great Silk Road", chosen by the Council of Elders, became the motto of 2018 in Turkmenistan. The Great Silk Road played a huge role in the dialogue of the two great civilizations - the West and the East.

In this context, it should also be noted that on the 23-rd of February this year. the ceremony of laying the Afghan section of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India gas pipeline (TAPI), which will take place on the Turkmen-Afghan border, and the laying of an optical fiber link along the same route, the laying of the construction of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan power transmission line, and the ceremony commissioning of the Serhetabat-Turgundi railway. Turkmenistan builds this section of the Serhetabat-Turgundi road at its own expense, material and technical and human resources.
