International Day Neutrality

Neutrality Day of Turkmenistan is the one of  important political holiday  in Turkmenistan.

On December 12, 1995, Turkmenistan received the unanimous support of 185 UN member countries with the adoption of the UN General Assembly Resolution on the “Permanent Neutrality of Turkmenistan.” At international law, neutrality is defined as the legal status, which recognizes the state’s obligation to refrain from any kind of war as well as from joining any military alliances and blocs that may involve in military clashes, except the state’s self-defence against armed attack.

Our peaceful, prosperous country is the main pillar of strengthening peace and mutual understanding with other countries. As a state of stability, our country showed itself to the world as a country that provides and protects peace and stability under the leadership of our President.

One of the famouse arch  in our motherland  is Monument of  Neutrality  arch. This arch is symbol of our Permenent of  Neutrality of our country. Monument of  Neutrality arch is located in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. In 2010, it was moved to the suburbs of the city. The three-legged arch, which became known locally as “The Tripod”, was 75 metres tall and was built in 1998.The arch was located in central part of Ashgabat where it dominated the skyline, being taller than the nearby Presidential Palace. The arch was illuminated at night. The arch featured a panoramic viewing platform which was a popular attraction for visitors.

Today people all over the world know that the contribution of neutral Turkmenistan to the provision of global peace and prosperity is significant. All Turkmen people celebrate International  Neutrality day  each year.

In conclusion, I wish our Hero Arkadag and honourable President as well as the people of Turkmenistan sound health, wellbeing, happy life, and great achievements in the name of prosperity of the Motherland!
