Early in the morning, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, who is currently on leave, made a walk in the foothills of Kopetdag Mountains. Turkmen leader was accompanied by alabay Pal’van.

The century-old practice of Turkmen nation shows that walking out of the alabays in mountain gorges supports strengthening of thoroughbred characteristics of this mighty dogs.

Brave Turkmen alabays, together with fast ahalteke horses, are integral part of our rich national cultural heritage.

Opening of specialized kennel, which has been built by the initiative of the Head of the State in Ak Bugday District, Ahal Velayat, is an evidence of huge attention paid to the formation of valuable gene pool of the alabays, improvement of culture of dog breeding and its systematic provision.

This event has fallen on the publishing of book “Turkmen alabay” by the President of the country, which reveals important role of these wonderful dogs in life and destiny of our people.

The opening of specialized kennel “Türkmen alabaý itleri”, which has started systematic activity for development of this legendary dog breed, became an evidence of special attention paid by the Government to protection of unique watch dogs.

Taking into account increased interest in the alabays bred by our talented ancestors, which was observed in the last years, the utmost attention is paid to correct training of dogs, protection and development of their outstanding thoroughbred characteristics.

Foundation of Türkmen Alabaý Itleri Association, which first session took place on May 7 last year, has served to further popularization of one of the best breed of watchdogs.

Enhancement of the best traditions of national dog breeding school in the context of objectives of breeding the alabays on systematic base, application of methods of national selection and modern achievements of the world science are among the priority directions of activity of the Association.

Turkmens have always valued these big dogs for their unlimited dedication. Vigilant to the enemy, having no equal to it as a watchdog, which shepherds are well aware of, the alabay has been protecting his master and everything surrounding him like home, family and children, which is most important, with loyalty. Therefore, the alabay is a personification of unlimited affection, trust and friendship. These are the main concepts that have been put into the logotype of the Association.

Opening of veterinary clinic and home animal complex, which were built in Anau, was an important step aimed at further development and popularization of Turkmen alabays and formation of modern system of canine activity and dog breeding. Chairman of Türkmen Alabaý Itler Association S. Berdimuhamedov took part in the opening ceremony.

The vet clinic represent an entirely new word in services given to home pets. This is a modern treatment and diagnostic centre provided with advanced medical equipment and designated for diagnosing of animal diseases and professional treatment.

Complex for temporarily care of pets has been built next to the vet clinic. Zoo hotel is also the first facility of such kind in Turkmenistan, which was established on the government level. The complex is designated for temporary stay of cats, dogs, birds, etc. as well as for fish, for which special fish tanks have been built. It has all conditions for comfortable stay of animals, prevention of its possible runaway or receiving injuries during the stay, provision of veterinary aid in case it is necessary.

Increased interest to the alabays, which were bred in Turkmen land, observed recently is mainly caused by personal attitude of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, owning to whom an old glory of watchdogs is growing every day increasing number of their lovers all over the world.

Therefore, taking into account big number of people wishing to join Türkmen Alabaý Itleri Association, especially canine specialists and dog breeders from all over the world who express interest in these dogs, the Association will probably acquire an international status.

From their side, the members of the Association say that they will continue scientific and selection work aimed at protection of purity of the breed, developing of new lines, increment of livestock of Turkmen alabays. It was also decided to develop the projects of similar veterinary complexes for regional offices of the Association.

The alabays are special theme in literature works of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. Thus, the Head of the State dedicated a verse to the dog:

You are a hero, my alabay,
You are a valiant, my alabay,
You are a brave if you need, alabay,
You are pride of Turkmens, my alabay!


It has become a good tradition in the country to hold international ahalteke horse beauty contest in the country every year, which is another indication of the importance paid to popularization of national values made by our people throughout the centuries.

In this context, development of proposal on organization of similar international contest, which will demonstrate skills, unique characteristics and distinguishing features of the breed, is very current.

Turkmen leader with Pal’van, the alabay, which is bred in Türkmen Alabaý Itleri Business Entity made a walk across picturesque mountain foothills. Forest zones on mountain slopes and peaks provide the formation of favourable microclimate in this place.

Walking is an integral part of century-old national traditions in breeding and training of the alabays, which as President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov notes improve the relations between master and pet.

The interest in alabays has significantly increased in the last years. Our brave dogs have deservingly occupied leading positions among the watchdog breeds of the world. This big and physically strong animals, which at the same time are distinguished with friendly character, become more popular not only in the country but also far beyond its borders.

That is why, the protection and development of outstanding characteristics of the alabay, collection and compilation of practice of breeding, exchanged of knowledge are current and important objectives today. Strict adherence to ancient traditions of breeding and training of this dog will help to protect its distinguishing features, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov notes.

Decision on installation of the sculpture of the world-famous alabay was another evidence of high respect paid to loyal companion of Turkmen people.

In his book “Turkmen Alabay” the Head of the State highlights that alabay is our national pride, heritage of the Motherland, a value that was made by our ancestors. Our duty is to protect and to bring this value to future generation in its all magnificence.

Having finished walking with the alabay, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov left the place of event.

Телефонный разговор между Президентом Туркменистана и Первым Президентом Республики Казахстан

Состоялся телефонный разговор между Президентом Туркменистана Гурбангулы Бердымухамедовым и Первым Президентом Республики Казахстан – Елбасы Нурсултаном Назарбаевым.

В начале беседы глава государства сердечно поздравил национального лидера Казахстана с отмеченным недавно 80-летним юбилеем и пожелал крепкого здоровья, неиссякаемой жизненной энергии и успехов в его ответственной деятельности, направленной на дальнейшее процветание казахстанского народа. В Туркменистане хорошо знают и уважают Первого Президента Республики Казахстан как мудрого политика, посвятившего жизнь развитию братской страны и укреплению её авторитета на международной арене.

Говоря об этом, Президент Гурбангулы Бердымухамедов подчеркнул неоценимый личный вклад Елбасы Нурсултана Назарбаева в упрочение отношений дружбы и взаимовыгодного сотрудничества с ближайшими соседями в Центральной Азии.

Туркменистан, в свою очередь, нацелен на самое широкое партнёрство с государствами региона, всемерно содействуя продвижению равноправного, доверительного диалога по всем направлениям, как в двустороннем, так и в многостороннем формате.

Выразив искреннюю признательность за поздравления и добрые слова, Елбасы Нурсултан Назарбаев отметил высокий уровень взаимопонимания и доверия, присущий межгосударственным отношениям и являющийся надёжной основой для их дальнейшего успешного развития.

В ходе телефонного разговора собеседники с удовлетворением констатировали поступательную динамику туркмено-казахстанского сотрудничества, которое, опираясь на многолетние узы добрососедства и взаимной поддержки, ныне наполняется новым содержанием.

Как отметил Президент Гурбангулы Бердымухамедов, в Туркменистане очень рады выздоровлению Елбасы Нурсултана Назарбаева, который благодаря силе воли и духа смог преодолеть недуг и вернуться к созидательной деятельности во благо Казахстана.

Собеседники также уделили внимание мировой проблематике, связанной с пандемией коронавируса, и пути сложения международных усилий для её преодоления.

Одним из таких путей, как отметил туркменский лидер, является продвижение партнёрства по линии научной дипломатии, в том числе взаимодействие ученых в области определения происхождения коронавируса, причин и условий его возникновения.

Как известно, опасные для здоровья человека вещества, в том числе вирусы, могут переноситься воздушными потоками, особенно в сложной экологической среде. Центральная Азия относится к наиболее чувствительным и уязвимым с экологической точки зрения регионам мира. Одной из главных причин этого является проблема Аральского моря.

Воздушные массы, формирующиеся в зоне Арала и распространяющиеся на обширном географическом пространстве, оказывают негативное воздействие на природу и климат и представляют особую опасность для здоровья людей, проживающих не только в этом регионе, но и за его пределами.

Туркменистан, выступая за создание Специальной программы ООН для бассейна Аральского моря, предпринимает конкретные шаги для развития этой инициативы.

Особо памятен тот день, продолжил Президент Гурбангулы Бердымухамедов, когда Вы 24 августа 2018 года в Авазе на Саммите МФСА выступили в поддержку предложений Туркменистана по комплексному решению вопросов Аральского моря на уровне ООН.

- Я отчетливо помню Ваши слова, сказанные в обоснование этой позиции. Тогда Вы подчеркнули, что «на протяжении жизни одного поколения людей с лица планеты Земля исчезло целое море, - отметил туркменский лидер.

Говоря о необходимости согласованных действий в целях устранения последствий этой экологической катастрофы, глава Туркменистана заявил о готовности в самое ближайшее время установить регулярные контакты между учеными-медиками, экологами и другими специалистами Туркменистана и Казахстана.

Подобное профессиональное партнерство станет весомым вкладом в дело обеспечения экологического благополучия в Центрально-азиатском регионе, охраны здоровья проживающих здесь людей, борьбы с глобальной пандемией, отметил туркменский лидер.

Мы убеждены, что реализация совместных планов, нацеленных на расширение традиционных туркмено-казахстанских политических и экономических связей, отвечающих общим интересам, будет продолжена и впредь, сказал глава государства, ещё раз тепло поздравив национального лидера соседней страны с замечательным юбилеем.

В завершение беседы Президент Туркменистана Гурбангулы Бердымухамедов и Первый Президент Республики Казахстан – Елбасы Нурсултан Назарбаев обменялись наилучшими пожеланиями в адрес друг друга и братских народов обеих стран.

Состоялось первое заседание Межведомственной рабочей группы по разработке Национальной стратегии по развитию возобновляемой энергии. Данная структура была создана специальным Постановлением Президента Гурбангулы Бердымухамедова от 26 июня текущего года.

Во встрече, проведённой в онлайн-формате, приняли участие руководители ключевых министерств: иностранных дел, энергетики, финансов и экономики, сельского хозяйства и охраны окружающей среды, строительства и архитектуры, а также представители нефтегазового комплекса и других профильных организаций.

Основной целью сотрудничества туркменских специалистов с зарубежными партнёрами в этой сфере является тот факт, что мировое сообщество признаёт реальные преимущества экологически чистой, возобновляемой энергии, которая может быть использована в качестве дополнения или альтернативы широко применяемым сегодня ископаемым видам топлива – углю, нефти, газу, мировые ресурсы которых ограничены, а потому дорогостоящи.

Обозначив ряд первоочередных задач на обозримую перспективу, члены Рабочей группы подчеркнули значимость инициатив главы государства в сфере охраны окружающей среды.

Запасы «зелёной» энергии, извлекаемой из природных ресурсов – солнечного света, воды, ветра, биотоплива и т.д., являются постоянно восполняемыми и, по человеческим меркам, неисчерпаемыми. Более того, они не наносят урон природе, что особо важно с учётом экологического аспекта, выступающего одной из составляющей государственной политики.

Выступавшие высказались за налаживание широкого сотрудничества с зарубежными партнёрами и активное привлечение авторитетных международных организаций и структур к разработке Национальной стратегии по развитию возобновляемой энергии в Туркменистане.

President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev had a telephone conversation.

The President of Turkmenistan congratulated the national leader of Kazakhstan on the 80th anniversary and wished him good health, inexhaustible life energy and success in his responsible work aimed at ensuring the further prosperity of the Kazakh people. People in Turkmenistan know and respect the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan as a wise politician, who has devoted his life to the development of the fraternal country and strengthening its authority in the international arena.

President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov emphasized the invaluable personal contribution of Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev to strengthening the ties of friendship rand mutually beneficial cooperation with the closest neighbors in Central Asia.

Turkmenistan, in turn, aims at developing wide partnership with the states of the region, contributing in every way to promoting an equal, trusting dialogue in all areas, both bilaterally and multilaterally.

Expressing sincere gratitude for congratulations and kind words, Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev underlined the high level of mutual understanding and trust inherent in interstate relations that stand as the basis for their further successful development.

During the telephone conversation, the interlocutors expressed satisfaction with the progressive dynamics of the Turkmen-Kazakh cooperation, which is filled with new content, relying on many years of good neighborliness and mutual support.

According to President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, Turkmenistan is very happy for the recovery of Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev, who, thanks to his will and spirit, was able to overcome the disease and return to creative work for the good of Kazakhstan.

The interlocutors also paid attention to the world problems because of the coronavirus pandemic, and the joint international efforts to address the problems

According to the Turkmen leader, one of the ways is to promote partnership in scientific diplomacy, including the interaction of scientists to identify the origin of coronavirus, the causes and conditions of its occurrence.

As is known, substances hazardous to human health, including viruses, can be carried by air especially in a complex ecological environment. Central Asia is one of the environmentally sensitive regions of the world. One of the main reasons for this is the problem of the Aral Sea.

Air masses that form in the Aral Sea zone and spread over a vast geographical area have a negative impact on nature and climate and jeopardise the health of people living not only in this region, but also outside it.

Putting forward the initiative on creating the UN Special Program for the Aral Sea Basin, Turkmenistan takes concrete steps to develop this initiative.

Speaking about the importance of coordinated efforts in order to eliminate the consequences of this environmental disaster, the President of Turkmenistan expressed the willingness to establish regular contacts between medical scientists, environmentalists and other specialists of Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan in the near future.

According to the Turkmen leader such a professional partnership will be a significant contribution to ensuring environmental well-being in the Central Asian region, protecting the health of people living here, and combating the global pandemic.

“We believe that the implementation of joint plans aimed at expanding the traditional Turkmen-Kazakh political and economic ties that meet common interests will continue in the future”, underlined the President of Turkmenistan, once again warmly congratulating the national leader of the neighboring country on the anniversary.

President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev expressed the best wishes to each other and the fraternal peoples of the two states.
