-> One of the priorities of Turkmenistan in its interaction with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization is to work actively for the country’s nomination to the Executive Board of UNESCO for the period 2013-2015.

This is reported by the State News Agency of Turkmenistan (TDH) in connection with the forthcoming participation of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov in the 66th session of the UN General Assembly that opened in New York.

The report says that the priority directions of the policy of Turkmenistan aimed at reviving, preserving and promoting the unique cultural heritage of the Turkmen people are in harmony with the objectives of UNESCO, which provides an incentive for the intensification of the traditional long-term partnership.

An important joint project, which needs to be implemented, is the group nomination to the List of the World Heritage of the Silk Road monuments located in 12 countries, such as Japan, Korea, China, India, Nepal, Afghanistan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.
