The head of the OSCE Center in Ashgabat, N. Drozd, held a briefing in which she commented on the interaction with Turkmenistan, assessing both the results and future prospects. The event was attended by representatives of the diplomatic corps and the media, as well as lecturers of the Institute of International Relations of the Foreign Ministry.
The head of the OSCE Center highly appreciated the political, economic and humanitarian aspects of Turkmenistan's status-neutral foreign policy course. Ms. Drozd stressed that they help to strengthen stability, peace and security at both regional and global levels, as well as help solve global issues.
The final document of the International Conference held on December 12 in the capital of Turkmenistan under the leadership of Turkmen leader Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov deserves special mention. The event was devoted to the role of the policy of neutrality in ensuring sustainable development, peace and security at the global level. The final document was released in six official UN languages.
The document contains recommendations for all UN member states to promote an active policy of neutrality, making full use of the potential of neutral countries in order to maintain global peace. Instruments of preventive diplomacy are no less important in this case. They serve as one of the foundations of the UN activities in the direction of mutual cooperation and security in the European region.
The Head of the OSCE Center in Ashgabat fully supported the constructive initiatives of the Leader of the Turkmen nation, as well as the practical steps taken in this direction.
Noting the important role of the Final Document, N. Drozd stated that it serves as a vector for future interaction between Turkmenistan and the OSCE.
During the briefing, the Head of the OSCE Center mentioned the UN General Assembly Resolution proclaiming 2021 as the International Year of Peace and Trust. Noting the significance of this resolution, initiated by the Leader of the Turkmen nation Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, N. Drozd said that Turkmenistan has thus once again confirmed the firmness of its intention to use its neutral status to assist global efforts to ensure security and peace.
