Turkmenistan proposes to establish UN Energy Council
In his speech at the 65th UN General Assembly session in New York on 20 September, Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov proposed to consider the issue of establishing the United Nations Energy Council that would provide a political framework and organizational modalities for a systematic, professional discussion of the entire complex of energy issues.

According to the Turkmen leader, in the current conditions it is only the UN with its universal legitimacy, enormous moral authority, existing legal framework and extensive experience in addressing issues of global importance who is able to provide conditions for a broad dialogue on energy issues and, in case of reaching agreements, be the guarantor of their implementation.

In his speech, the Turkmen leader once again drew attention of the international community to the relevance of establishing uniform principles, distinct rules governing relations between producers, transit countries and consumers of energy resources.

According to him, in this regard Turkmenistan intends, during this session, to put forward an initiative on the adoption of a General Assembly resolution establishing a UN expert group to develop an international mechanism of stable energy supplies in the world.
