It was emphasized that Turkmenistan supports the development of a dialogue with the OSCE and takes an active part in the activities of the Human Dimension Committee and attaches great importance to the protection of human rights in the OSCE region.

The meeting also touched upon such areas as continuing and strengthening the inclusive and interactive approach of the Human Dimension Committee, which promoted gender equality, media development, tolerance and non-discrimination.

A number of initiatives on human values put forward by Turkmenistan in the UN and other international organizations, including the OSCE, were noted. Today, our country has established itself on the world stage as a state interested in the development of a democratic society, the main values of which, as you know, are a person, his inalienable rights and freedoms. In order to strengthen international relations in a constructive, creative way, Turkmenistan closely cooperates with large authoritative organizations, primarily with the United Nations, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and other structures.
