The organization of the visit of OSCE Secretary General Helga Schmid to Ashgabat in March and the holding of a meeting of the environment ministers of Central Asian countries within the framework of this visit were discussed by the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan Myahri Byashimova and the head of the OSCE Center in Ashgabat John McGregor.

During the negotiations that took place on Monday at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan, projects planned for implementation by the government of Turkmenistan jointly with the OSCE Center in 2024 were also detailed.

Turkmenistan stands for promoting the initiative of the OSCE Secretary General to hold regular meetings with the ministers for environmental protection of the Central Asian countries. The first such meeting within the framework of the Climate Conference in Vienna in July 2023 showed that this format is timely and in demand. In this regard, the Turkmen side expressed its readiness to host the next meeting of this format in 2024 in Turkmenistan.

Turkmenistan also takes the initiative to establish a specialized structure – the Regional Center for Climate Technologies. In this regard, a proposal was put forward to hold an OSCE forum on technologies related to climate change.
