Turkmen border guards get first drones
The border troops of Turkmenistan received new aircrafts designed to conduct air monitoring around the clock in all weather conditions. As the Turkmenistan.ru correspondent reports from Ashgabat, the performance of new aircrafts was demonstrated yesterday to President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov at Akdepe military airfield near the Turkmen capital.

There were demonstrated capacities of the aircraft fitted with special equipment and the drone. The aircrafts will significantly strengthen control over protection of the state border, prevent illegal crossing of the state border and smuggling of drugs.

Borders of Turkmenistan are borders of peace and friendship, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said after the demonstration. We will continue to take all necessary measures to ensure that our borders remain impregnable when it comes to assaults on the peaceful fabric of life of Turkmenistan, and any threats to national security."
