Clearly following the policy of “open doors” and international cooperation implemented by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, independent neutral Turkmenistan puts forward progressive initiatives and takes active part in the efforts of the world community to address pressing issues of our time, ensure global peace and security, and create favorable conditions for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals on a regional and global scale.
The last month of the past year was full of international events. The meetings, negotiations, forums held in December in bilateral and multilateral formats serve as a clear confirmation that independent Turkmenistan, following the policy of “open doors” pursued by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, is playing an increasingly active role in addressing topical issues of regional and global development.

This is confirmed by the strategic nature of the long-term dialogue with the UN, built on a systematic basis.
A large number of working meetings, negotiations, political consultations, international forums, seminars, exhibitions, cultural and other events that took place in our Homeland last month in the context of the open door policy, being successfully implemented under the leadership of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, were another illustration of the commitment of Independent Neutral Turkmenistan to a broad interstate dialogue for general wellbeing, security and sustainable development.
