Turkmenistan invites the international community to think about creating a unified concept of security as a source of political and ideological platform for further joint action by states to address key issues of our time. This was said by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov on September 30 at a press briefing in Ashgabat devoted to his participation in the 65th session of the UN General Assembly.
"In my speech at the UN, I called it a Strategy for the Future by investing in this concept the idea of rejecting previous mindset that revolved around geopolitical rivalry, struggle for control of territories and resources, division of spheres of influence and so forth," the Turkmen leader continued.
"We offer a new level of understanding of contemporary realities that objectively need the overcoming of differences in details and tactical issues in the name of common strategic goals. We call it Diversity of interests, unity of purpose'. This is how I would formulate a model of interstate relations in the context of collective efforts to ensure comprehensive security and development," he said.
It should be recalled that in his speech at the UN General Assembly Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov proposed to establish a high-level Forum on Security and Cooperation in Central Asia and the Caspian Basin, and put forward proposals for political settlement and economic rehabilitation in Afghanistan, as well as a number of other initiatives.
