The General Assembly proclaims the present Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a task to which all peoples and states should strive, so that every person and every organ of society, constantly bearing in mind this Declaration, strives through education and training to promote respect for these rights and freedoms. and ensuring, through national and international progressive measures, universal and effective recognition and implementation of them both among the peoples of the Member States of the Organization and among the peoples of the territories under their jurisdiction.

The basis of international treaties in the field of rights and freedoms signed by Turkmenistan is dominated by the policy of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov on the active implementation of human rights and freedoms in national legislation, emphasis on the strict implementation of the country’s international obligations in this regard.

On this historic day, fundamental human rights and freedoms are being demonstrated in different parts of our country. The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) runs online courses for law students. Teachers of higher educational institutions conduct lectures for secondary school students on how and how fundamental human rights should be observed, that everyone’s personal life is inviolable, everyone has the right to freedom of thought and freedom of speech. In particular, at the Institute of International Relations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan, under the guidance of teachers of the Department of International Law and Comparative Law, a lecture was given to high school students on the international day of fundamental human rights and freedoms. The meeting discussed issues such as: where did human rights come from? How did they come to this day? How did human rights evolve? Why is privacy inviolable? All these and other issues were discussed in a warm company with secondary school students, where students of the Faculty of International Law actively participated.

It is worth noting that this document, adopted for the first time in the history of mankind, proclaimed the need to protect fundamental human rights, and the declaration was translated into 500 languages ​​of the world,” – said in herself speech Ayna Babayeva, a student at the Institute of International Relations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan.
