The repeated election of Turkmenistan during recent years by Vice-President of the UN General Assembly, entry into the Organization's important structural entities, opening of a Regional Centre for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia in Ashgabat at the initiative of President Gurbanguly Berdymuhamedov testifies to our country's authority growth in the international arena.
