Qureshi appreciates Turkmen’s neutrality

ASHGABAT: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Saturday appreciated the ‘Permanent Neutrality’ stance of Turkmenistan and said it had contributed to regional peace, security and stability.

He was addressing the International Conference on Permanent Neutrality of Turkmenistan here, as part of series of ceremonies marking the 15th anniversary of neutrality of the land locked Central Asian Republic. Turkmenistan is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its permanent neutrality, approved by 185 countries on December 12, 1995.
Foreign Minister Qureshi who is here as part of President Asif Ali Zardari’s delegation for the inking of the Turkmenistan- Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline project said Pakistan was proud to be among the select group of nations co-sponsoring the UN General Assembly Resolution on Turkmenistan’s Permanent Neutrality.
Qureshi termed it a potent prescription for lasting peace and said the policy was based on time honoured norms of relations among the sovereign states and added it was a reflection of wisdom and sagacity of the Turkmen leadership. He said the revival of the TAPI summit was a historical milestone and said it would bring durable peace and sustainable development in the region.
Later talking to APP, the foreign minister said the President held important discussions with his Turkmen counterpart last night, covering whole range of issues.-Agencies
