Maternal Love — Eternal Light

Maternal love is like eternal light which enlightens her children’s lives in her absence as well. So if love of mothers has such power it results in that it is something, which is rather complicated to define it. Actually, when the talk is about love, I remember an English proverb: «Love is blind». Here meaning of «love» is not only maternal, but in abstract manner. As someone falls in love with someone, he or she sees her/him as an ideal one. Because love has such kind of power. It «covers» your eyes and you are unable to see her/his shortcomings rather than only good manners. As they say, love is something, which is almost impossible to explain what actually it is. When it comes to love of mothers, it gets more difficult to explain the meaning of it since love among people can burn out one day but maternal love never.

Patriotism has always been the core theme of the Turkmen literature. The idea of defending the Fatherland runs all through the epic «Gorogly» which was a kind of people’s ethic rules and demands.

In this regard, fruitful co-operation of Turkmenistan with the United Nations Organization, which is built on the principles of strategic partnership and which has received new content at modern stage, is worth to be mentioned. At present time, our state is a member of number of structural divisions of the United Nations, under which it carries out its activity.

As it is known, we believe that there is always the wisdom of the Almighty in the blessed month of Ramadan.

They were the chosen servants of the Almighty, the bestowers of goodness. The people regarded these people as saints, and their grown-up sons are accepted them as their Heroes, national, and Heads of state. Our great mother gave to the Turkmen country honourable children who will be the head of the state and bring together the nation in a great nation without neglecting such qualities as contentment, statesmanship, noble humanity, love for the fatherland, loyalty to the family hearth.

For many centuries, our women have perfected the moral norms of behavior and passed them down from generation to generation. There is a special mention of these in the book «Worshipping Mother-worshipping a sacred Person» by our Hero Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.

Preventive Diplomacy-the foundation of prosperous future

Committed to the lofty goals of humanity, the ancient traditions of Turkmen people are spread throughout the world as a policy of neutrality aimed at ensuring peace and security throughout the world. Recently, the good news from the headquarters of the United Nations once again highlighted the content of our policy of permanent neutrality. Unanimous adoption of the Resolution «Location of the United Nations Regional Center for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia» on the initiative of Turkmenistan was recognized as a great success of Turkmen diplomacy. 31 years ago, on March 2, 1992, the Turkmen people became a full member of the United Nations, the world's largest humanitarian public organization.

The secret of ancient Nisa

On the political map of the ancient world, the historical province called Parthia was located in South Turkmenistan. The Great Parthian kingdom was later formed on its basis. This state later consolidated a large geographical area and competed with Ancient Rome. Parthia is known to have had different capital cities at different times. But Nisaya has always been Parthia's «sallanchag» - the city where the state was founded, its spiritual and historical capital. It was one of the most powerful states that shook the ancient world. It was founded in Parthia, one of the satrapies (provinces) of the Seleucid State in 247 BC by Arsak I, the head of the Parn tribe and his brother Tridatus. Parthia lived for almost 500 years and it fell in 224 AD and disappeared from the scene of history. Over the centuries, information about him has faded. According to this, there are different views in science about the foundation of Parthia, the exact dates of its origin and trial, and the origin of the Arsaki dynasty.

Legislative reflection of the cultural heritage of the turkmen people

Culture is one of the most important areas of public policy. In this regard, every success in the field of culture includes a whole set of different social goals.

The state's science and technology policy is in the interest of society and everyone».

This is clearly shown by the fact that the initiatives promoted by our country are supported in the international arena. As we know, on March 2, our Esteemed President Serdar Berdimuhamedov was on a working visit to the Republic of Azerbaijan to participate in the summit of the Communication Group of the Non-Aligned Movement to fight against COVID-19. This summit of the Non-Aligned Movement is dedicated to the infectious disease that has afflicted the world in recent years - COVID-19, because this infection has caused great damage to the normal economy of the world. It caused a significant decline in the functioning of all systems of the world economy. A global crisis has emerged in the international arena. The National Leader of the Turkmen people, The Chairman of the Halk Maslahaty of Turkmenistan, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, at the summit of the Coordination Group of the Non-Aligned Movement to fight against the COVID-19 infection held in May of 2020 dedicated to fighting against the corona-virus infection through digital networks, said that the beginning of the strategy of joint actions in overcoming this global crisis is very important and he is proud of it.

Happy youth and new historical epoch

«Happy youth with Arkadag Serdar» — the motto Turkmenistan has chosen for the year 2023 once again reaffirms the trust and faith bestowed by the nation upon the young generation who are called upon to preserve the inherited accomplishments of predecessors and take the country to the new horizons of development in the historical period of national development called «Revival of the New Epoch of the Powerful State». This decision has been primarily preconditioned by the consistent, comprehensive, and, most importantly longstanding practical activities of the state aimed at shaping the individual growth of young Turkmen citizens, creating all necessary opportunities for strengthening their intellectual, creative and spiritual potential in the interests of society and the state. In this regard, it is important to underscore that during the years of sovereign development, Turkmenistan has gradually laid the foundation for further reinforcement of the state youth policy and managed to create the necessary prerequisites for the active involvement of young citizens in the socio-economic and political life of the country. As a result, today we see that having invested in young people on a long-term basis, our society has successfully fulfilled the main tasks assigned to it in this regard.

Magtymguly Pyragy’s poems

The words of our Hero Arkadag who wrote: «Not only the Turkmen people but also the other nations of the whole world pay a great respect to the poetic world of Magtymguly Pyragy» really characterize the talent of this great Turkmen poet.

Sultan of saints

When we think about the city of Koneurgench, the capital of the state whose reputation once spread to seven continents, we realize that in the past, Koneurgench was a great cultural centre of Oghuz Turkmens, a flourishing place of science, culture, and art. This land is a holy land that gave birth to great thinkers, world-famous scientists, masters, and poets. The great buildings of the past! The mysterious pages of history tell many strange and mysterious stories about those buildings. Those stories about the great buildings of the ancient Koneurgench, the information that looks like fairy tales compared to today's view, correspond to the time when the fiery heels of fierce enemies did not yet tread on this land. In fact, they are cited not only in the memoirs of one or two historians, but in many books.

In order to use fruitfully the existing opportunities in this trend an important place is given to the Joint Committee and the Business Council formed for co-operation between the Trade-industry Establishment of Turkmenistan and with the Federation of Trade-industry Establishments of the United Arab Emirates.

Permanent Neutrality of Turkmenistan: peace, trust and universal development

Achievements in the spheres of policy, culture and economy, progress and development as well as international authority that have been gained by our country since the day when international status of Permanent Neutrality of Turkmenistan was recognized by the Resolution adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization with unanimous support of 185 world states, has shown the correctness of the way chosen by our state.

Turkmenistan, relying on tasks and objectives originating from its legal status of Permanent Neutrality, carries out large-scope activities concerning providing and maintenance of universal peace, global safety and sustainable development and thus, significantly widens the scope of mutually beneficial cooperation with foreign states as well as international organizations. This is completely witnessed by the fact that Turkmenistan, up to present moment, has been maintaining diplomatic relations with numerous states and has been actively participating in the activity of major international organizations as their member.
