President of Turkmenistan wants specific founders for newspapers and magazines

President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov issued instructions to identify specific founders of Turkmenistan’s periodicals. As the Turkmenistan.ru correspondent reports from Ashgabat, this issue was discussed at a regular government meeting.

The President of Turkmenistan drew the relevant officials’ attention to the fact that most of the country’s newspapers and magazines say “Founder is the President of Turkmenistan.”

In this regard, the President of Turkmenistan said that the founder of any newspaper or magazine in the country should be a body fully responsible for this or other publication.

“For example, the founder of the governmental newspaper “Turkmenistan” and  “Neutral Turkmenistan” should be the Cabinet of Ministers, while the founder of “Mugallymlar gazeti” newspaper (Teacher's Newspaper) should be the Ministry of Education,"  the head of state said. He instructed relevant officials to work on this issue and name specific founders of periodicals from the relevant supervising bodies.
