According to Matthew Klimov, people are the greatest treasure of the Central Asian state.
The Ambassador of the United States of America to Ashgabat Matthew Klimov congratulated the citizens of Turkmenistan on the 30th anniversary of Independence. The event was celebrated on September 27. He noted that it is the Turkmen citizens who are the main secret of the success of the Central Asian country. It was reported by the press office of the US diplomatic mission.
— The United States was one of the first countries to recognize the independence of Turkmenistan. Americans have watched Turkmenistan grow into a proud and confident nation, grounded on the principle of positive neutrality, — said Klimov.
According to him, trade and economic cooperation between Ashgabat and Washington has always been mutually beneficial. Particular attention was paid to the effectiveness of joint programs in education and culture. The United States and Turkmenistan have been able to lay a solid foundation of mutual respect that has been existing for 30 years, he added.
— We will continue to cooperate with Turkmenistan for 30 years more, and another 30 years after that, always from a perspective of mutual respect, — noted the ambassador.
The head of the diplomatic mission said that since 2019, he and his wife have visited many places in the Central Asian country, big cities and small villages. The American official emphasized that the Turkmen people are incredibly hospitable.
— Through my experience, I realized that the greatest treasure Turkmenistan has is its people, and that is the reason Turkmenistan will forever have a special place in my heart, — said the ambassador.
