The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan on its official website expressed concern about the tense situation on the border between Turkmenistan and Afghanistan that appeared in foreign media.
Thus, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan, over the past few days, a number of foreign media outlets have disseminated false and biased information regarding the situation on the border of Turkmenistan and Afghanistan.

In this regard, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan informs that the territory of the border between Turkmenistan and Afghanistan is an example of friendship and cooperation.
Also, according to the Ministry of Defense of Turkmenistan, all military units, military equipment and personnel of the country's Armed Forces are in places of permanent deployment and continue to carry out planned training.

The Turkmen side is committed to objectivity and honesty in the media space and the dissemination of only verified and truthful information. This is especially important in matters of a peaceful settlement of the situation in Afghanistan. Turkmenistan stands for the search and implementation of political and diplomatic mechanisms to restore peace in the land of Afghanistan.
