27 years ago, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a historic Resolution that secured Turkmenistan’s unique international legal status of permanent neutrality.Our country was proclaimed the first neutral state in the modern history of the world, recognized by the Community of Nations.
This event of great historical importance marked a new stage in the development of the modern Turkmen state.
As a result of the efforts of the Hero-Arkadag, in 2015 the United Nations General Assembly re-adopted a resolution on the status of permanent neutrality of the independent Turkmen state, which became another evidence of its international recognition as a peacemaking country, defending high ideals of goodness, humanism and creativity from the first days of independence.
It is known that on December 6 of this year, during the 45th plenary session of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, the Resolution “2023 the International Year of Dialogue as a Guarantee of Peace” initiated by Turkmenistan was unanimously adopted.
This important document has become another vivid evidence of the universal recognition of the peaceful foreign policy pursued by our country and confirms the highly positive role of the policy of neutrality in addressing pressing issues on the global agenda.
At the end of the ceremony, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov warmly said goodbye to its participants and left the place of the event.
On this day, festive events dedicated to the International Day of Neutrality were held in all regions of the country.
