Based on the friendly, fraternal and neighborly relations between Turkmenistan and the Islamic Republic of Iran, in order to provide humanitarian assistance to those injured during the earthquake in the Iranian province of Kermanshah, the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov signed Resolution, instructing a number of ministries and organizations to donate humanitarian aid to the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The humanitarian cargo was delivered handed over to the Red Crescent Society of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Turkmenistan was among the first countries to assist the fraternal people of the neighboring country. Governor of the province of Kermanshah Hushang Bazvand expressed deep gratitude to President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.
The Turkmen people has an ancient tradition to maintain and develop friendly ties with neighbouring peoples, and, if necessary, to offer a helping hand and pass it over from generation to generation. The natural disaster in the southeast of Iran caused damages and affected the local population. Turkmenistan, guided by the principles of humanism and charity, provided humanitarian aid to the Iranian people.
The current humanitarian action testifies to the success of the foreign policy pursued by the President of Turkmenistan, and will also contribute to strengthening relations between the two neighboring states, becoming another vivid example of the inviolability of the traditions of friendship and good neighborliness.
