On May 26-28, 2021 Astrakhan State University became the venue of the International Scientific Forum "Caspian 2021: Ways of Sustainable Development", which gathered representatives of scientific, cultural, business circles of the Caspian states, including Turkmenistan. Our state was represented at the conference by the Consul of Turkmenistan in Astrakhan and the Vice-Rector of the Makhtumkuli Turkmen State University.
The forum participants appreciated the Caspian strategy of the President of Turkmenistan, which is based on a transparent and logical basis of friendship, peacefulness, and mutual respect. Based on these principles, Turkmenistan successfully held the First Caspian Economic Forum in 2019, which contributed to the expansion of cooperation in the Caspian region.
During the forum, representatives of Turkmenistan voiced an initiative to unite the efforts of the Caspian states to work effectively with international organizations, based on an understanding of the commonality and indivisibility of key goals and objectives. In this context, the Caspian states will have a broad field of cooperation in the long and short term.
