In his message, the President of Turkmenistan congratulated the Naval Forces of Turkmenistan and urged them to be loyal to the Motherland and follow the high principles of patriotism and humanism bequeathed by the great ancestors.

The President of Turkmenistan noted that the government of the country is taking all steps to ensure the comprehensive development of the Naval Forces.
