I congratulate you on the first widely celebrated Independence Day of Turkmenistan on September 27! Independence is the unshakable foundation of state sovereignty, unity and cohesion of the nation, says the President’s Address to the people.

The newest history of the Fatherland, all our current successes and achievements began with independence. That is why we are proud to celebrate this day as a national holiday, reflecting the creative spirit of the era, inspiring to achieve high goals.

The path we have chosen is the path of creation and creativity, along which we lead our country to high levels. We are successfully implementing large-scale programs and socio-economic, scientific, educational, socio-political reforms aimed at ensuring the country’s prosperity. As part of the Presidential Program, industrial enterprises, social and cultural facilities, modern residential buildings, settlements and villages are being built in all regions of the country.

The comprehensive reforms we are carrying out strengthen the foundations of sovereignty, ensure the planned, multilateral and dynamic development of the economy, contribute to a radical improvement in the social security of the people, the message says.

In the third millennium, we are reviving the Great Silk Road, laying new highways and steel highways, building seaports, transnational gas pipelines, uniting peoples with contacts in the spheres of culture, science and education, and sports. In this context, this year, such large projects as the International Seaport of the city of Turkmenbashi, the International Airport of Turkmenabat have been successfully implemented, the construction of the Afghan section of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India gas pipeline has been launched, the foundations of a transmission line and a fiber-optic communication system along the route Turkmenistan- Afghanistan – Pakistan. We put into operation the Serhetabat-Turgundi railway. Cycling races, track-and-field cross-country and International rally “Amul-Khazar 2018” have successfully passed along the roads of the Great Silk Road.

In addition, we have commissioned the first combined steam and gas power plant operating on the territory of the Mary state power plant, a new large gas chemical complex in the city of Garabogaz in the Balkan velayat, and other large facilities.

For about 23 years in international relations, our independent state has been operating under the legal status of permanent neutrality. With the states and peoples of the world, Turkmenistan is establishing ties on the principles of friendship and good-neighborliness, which meets the national interests and foreign policy of the state. Independent Turkmenistan consolidates the efforts of countries, international and regional organizations in strengthening peace and harmony on the planet, systematically develops relations based on mutual understanding and trust.

The chronicle of this year, 2018, includes such significant facts as the election of our neutral state as a member of the Bureau of the Inland Transport Committee of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, as well as a member of the Economic and Social Council for 2019-2021. On the initiative of the Turkmen side, Resolutions were adopted on supporting international efforts to stabilize the situation in Afghanistan and “On cooperation between the United Nations and the International Fund for Saving the Aral Sea”. World Cycling Day will be celebrated annually on June 3, and again on our initiative. All these significant events have become indisputable evidence of the steady growth of the international authority of neutral Turkmenistan, the presidential address emphasizes.
