ASHGABAT, October 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov visited a mooring of a Turkmen naval unit, where two newly built missile boats had recently anchored. The missile boats are built at the Sredne-Nevsky shipbuilding plant within Russian-Turkmen military-technical cooperation. The president visited the missile boats. The visit was broadcast on the national television.
“Turkmenistan as any country with the entry to the sea needs the warships for patrolling its maritime border, ensuring security and combating terrorism, poaching and drug trafficking,” the president told naval sailors. “The Caspian Sea will always be the sea of friendship and accord, which Turkmenistan’s policy of neutrality, openness and good neighborliness pursues for,” Berdymukhamedov pointed out.
President Berdymukhamedov stated about his decision to build a modern naval fleet on the Caspian Sea in August 2009 at a meeting of the Turkmen Security Council. The Naval Institute of the Turkmen Defence Ministry was founded already in 2010. The program to develop the Navy for the period until 2015 was developed and approved under the main provisions of the Military Doctrine of Turkmenistan.
“The approval of this document heralds the beginning of important and responsible work to form domestic naval forces in the Defence Ministry that should protect the interests of our country in the Caspian Sea,” the president remarked on Sunday.
The Sunday event “points to the permanent upgrading of the domestic fleet, which is systematically replenished with advanced military hardware,” the president underlined.
