 Turkmenistan implements social facilities in Afghanistan, regularly sends humanitarian aid, the foreign ministry of our country reports. This was stated by the Turkmen side at a high-level meeting on the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan, held on Monday in a hybrid format in Geneva, in which UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, as well as representatives of authoritative international organizations, took part. A delegation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan participated in the meeting from the Turkmen side. “Turkmenistan, following the traditions of good-neighborliness and friendship, systematically provides humanitarian assistance to neighboring countries, including Afghanistan.
