On 3 October, President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov, who had just returned from New York, inspected the areas located along Turkmenistan-Iran border and held the field session of the Security Council to sum up the results of performance for nine months of 2018.

Upon arrival at the venue, the President was greeted by senior officials of the law enforcement authorities fully equipped with weapons, knives, bulletproof vests and Getac laptops. However, judging by television footage, the Ministers did not use the computers but switched them on to keep them nearby and used notebooks to take notes of all orders made by the commander-in-chief.
