Berdymukhamedov gave a lecture to students and spoke about proverbs, wheat and achievements of the country

On September 1, at the Congress Center in Ashgabat, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov held a general lesson for schoolchildren and students on the occasion of the start of the new academic year, the state information agency TDH reported .

“I have decided to meet with you today and teach a general lesson about the historical path traversed by an independent neutral Fatherland, about the social development of the native people, about the duty and responsibilities of modern youth to the state and society, to their parents and family,” the head of state said.

The footage of the TV report shows that those present were without masks, but were sitting across an armchair from each other.

In his speech, which lasted an hour and a half, the president spoke about the role of youth, quoted his books and Turkmen proverbs, told legends, recalled his father. But most of the time was devoted to the achievements of Turkmenistan in all sectors - from the production of wheat and gasoline to the construction of facilities and planting trees.

The Chronicle of Turkmenistan quotes some vivid quotes from this speech:

About computers

For our kids, who are entering the world of knowledge for the first time, we present computers of domestic production under the name "Bilimli" as a gift. The fact that these computers, containing information in Turkmen, Russian and English, are produced in our country, makes us especially proud .

About neutrality

And what did neutrality give us? Neutrality has opened the way for us to a peaceful, friendly, calm and prosperous life. Neutrality has created wide opportunities for the development of humanitarian, economic, cultural and friendly relations with all states of the world.

About proverbs

From a young age, I made it a rule to write down proverbs in my notebooks that reflect life, worldview, patriotism, moral principles of our people, and the wealth of the Turkmen language. Based on the proverbs I have collected and systematized, the book "The Source of Wisdom" contains the following wise words: "A person is recognizable by his upbringing, a country by its flag." Today our independent country is recognized in the world by its State flag .

About Turkmen

The heroic path traversed by our ancestors, the glorious history of our native Fatherland are a glorious, historical, exemplary school. This is a very ancient history, and it goes back many millennia. Along with the Sumerians, Hindus, Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks, Latin Americans, the Turkmen are one of the most ancient peoples who gave the world unique material and spiritual values .

About science

In the book "Turkmenistan - the Heart of the Great Silk Road" I set out my wishes for our youth, who will make a worthy contribution to the further glorification and enhancement of the authority of our state in the world. Before going to a meeting with you, I looked through these lines again. I decided to include them in this tutorial. Now I will read them, and you write them down in your notebooks and follow them in your studies, work and in life :

“I am firmly convinced that new luminaries of science will appear on our land - their own Biruni, Avicenna, Myane Baba, Khorezmi, Farabi, Mervezi, Amuli, Zamakhshary, Kubra, Nesevi, Massona, Sarianidi, Dzhikievs and Ataniyazovs, who will make very important discoveries in world science will create works that will become bright guidebooks ”.

About the crisis

Despite the difficult financial and economic crisis in the world, we are developing the economy of our country through diversification .

About help

State funding provides additional support to families with many children, children in need of care, war veterans, and those who have lost their health while defending state or public interests.

The great thinker Makhtumkuli Fraghi has the following words: "It is necessary to support those who need it." With this in mind, we have created a Charitable Foundation to help children in need of guardianship. We are also building a Children's Health and Rehabilitation Center in the new modern administrative center of the Akhal velayat.

About wheat

When our ancestors set off on a long journey, they took with them a shining churek baked in a tamdyr. Turkmens have always respected bread and took it with them on the road. That is why wheat ears are placed on our State Emblem. Now our country not only produces a lot of grain, but also exports it .

About Ashgabat

As a result of our large-scale work, our capital will become even more beautiful and will raise its prestige as one of the most vibrant cities in the world. I call on young people to make their worthy contribution to the recognition of our capital as an exemplary city of the 21st century.

About youth

The faces of Turkmen boys and girls should always shine . Because you are the descendants of a people who have spread the high principles of humanism throughout the world. Turkmen boys and girls should always be healthy . Because you are the descendants of a people who admired the whole world with their high principles of physical and spiritual purity.
