Military incursion by Turkmenbaijan into the so-called area ¨West-Turkmen¨.
The presidential office and the government of the State Turkmenbaijan has taken knowledge of the common declaration of the states Derecta, the United Kingdom and Australia concerning what those governments call a military incursion into the so-called area of West-Turkmen.
The government of the State Turkmenbaijan denies formally any military actions by its officials in the West-Turkmen area bordering Turkmenbaijan and Australia and will condemn any similar actions.
It is true that the majority of the Turkmenbaijani people is in favour of a unification with the so-called region. Showing this sympathy for the idea was the meaning of the article which appeared last week in TURKKANAL|TURKMENBAYCAN NWS. No motions or proposals are discussed or voted in the Turkmenbaijani National Congress. A unification between Turkmenbaijan and West-Turkmen is not a point of order for the government of the State Turkmenbaijan.
The government of the State Turkmenbaijan will investigate this incident at its West borders. This government is based on peace, prosperity and democracy. Using military force is not the philosophy of this government.
President of the State Turkmenbaijan
