Making speech at the Headquarter of the United Nations Organization in New York at the UN Summit for Global Agenda after 2015, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said that it is impossible to achieve social and economic development of the states and nations of the planet without care of environment.

The concept of the Head of the State implies reasonable management methods, scientific organization of production and application of advanced technologies allowing avoiding negative influence on natural ecosystems. Stable ecological situation in Turkmenistan despite its rapid industrial development is an evidence of achievement of this.
