Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, Nov. 5 By Huseyn Hasanov – Trend: Turkmenistan intends to further strengthen its army as part of its military doctrine, which is exclusively of defensive nature, Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said Nov. 5.

The president made these remarks at a meeting of Turkmenistan’s National Security Council, according to a message from the Turkmen government.

“The Supreme Commander of Turkmenistan’s Armed Forces, the Army General Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov instructed the Defense Ministry to work on using the latest technologies, military equipment, and training the soldiers in the spirit of devotion to the fatherland and the people,” the message said.

The most important aspect of Turkmenistan’s military reform is the modernization of material and technical sources of the national army, and its re-equipment, according to the message.

Regarding this, the President Berdimuhamedov said the high level of organization of the military parade in honor of Independence Day (October 27-28) demonstrates the growing potential of the national armed forces.

Turkmenistan approved a military doctrine, the essence of which has remained unchanged in recent years, including the defense sufficiency and the rejection of participation in military-political blocs.

Turkmenistan declared 2015 the Year of Peace and Neutrality. This is due to the fact that on December 12, 1995 the UN adopted a resolution recognizing Turkmenistan’s permanent neutrality.
