U.S. Ambassador to Turkmenistan Matthew Klimov in his speech at an international conference held in Ashgabat on April 15, shared his vision of the concepts of peace and trust. The main message of the diplomat was that peace can be achieved only by actively working to create and maintain relations of trust between nations.
Mr. M. Klimov noted that trust and the pursuit of peace open up prospects for the development of international relations. In this regard, the initiatives of the Head of Turkmenistan, through which 2021 was declared the International Year of Peace and Trust, are of particular importance.

According to the diplomat, the U.S. supports the independence and sovereignty of Turkmenistan, which is a basic principle of building fair and trusting relations between states.
