The Day of Poetry of Makhtumkuli Fragi, whose monument cannot be opened for two years, was celebrated in Ahal with the participation of the Berdimuhamedovs

On June 27, Turkmenistan celebrated the Day of Workers of Culture and Art, as well as Magtymguly Fragi's Poetry. President Serdar Berdimuhamedov and ex-president and current chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty Milli Gengesha Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov took part in the creative evening, which took place in the building of the White Yurt in the Ak Bugday etrap of the Akhal velayat, the state information agency TDH reports .

The concert was also attended by the leaders of the Halk Maslakhaty and the Mejlis Milli Gengesh, members of the Cabinet of Ministers and heads of military and law enforcement agencies.

“The audience greeted with applause the songs to the verses of the Hero-Arkadag “Leýlisaç barada rowaýat”, “Ak güllerim sana”, “Ýadymda”, “Bagt nury”, which became an expression of respect and veneration for the wonderful works of art created by the talent of Arkadag, as well as unshakable pride for the wonderful songs,” writes TDH.

At the celebration, songs were also performed in honor of the president and videos about the achievements of the country were shown.

Then Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov congratulated everyone on the holiday, and his son thanked the artists for their excellent performances.

Judging by the footage of the TV report, the event was also attended by the daughters and granddaughters of Berdymukhammedov Sr. As a rule, stories with the participation of the Berdymukhammedovs last long enough, but this time the story about the event took only two minutes, during which the Berdymukhammedovs were shown only twice. Serdar completely remained behind the scenes.

Recall that on this day it was planned to open a 60-meter monument to the poet Magtymguly Fragi, which Serdar Berdimuhamedov inspected last time on April 27 and May 20 .

In April, Deputy Prime Minister for Culture and Media Myakhrijemal Mammedova announced the preparation of ceremonial events for the opening of the monument, which will take place on June 27 on the Day of Workers of Culture and Art, as well as Magtymguly Fragi's Poetry.

It was previously planned to open the monument in June 2021.
