Dear compatriots!

Dear people!

I sincerely congratulate you on the National Spring Holiday - International Nowruz Day, solemnly celebrated in our Fatherland in the year, the motto of which is “The Fount of Reason of Magtymguly Fragi”! I am confident that the events on the occasion of this holiday will inspire compatriots to achieve grandiose goals for the prosperity of the Motherland, contributing to the widespread popularization of primordial national values and rich cultural heritage.

Novruz, which occupies a special place in the life of the peoples of the East, is a holiday of humanism, unity, friendship and brotherhood. Improving the cultural and spiritual values of their glorious ancestors, Turkmens from time immemorial have widely celebrated this day, observing the traditions associated with it. Associated with revival, prosperity and renewal of life, Novruz has special significance in the formation of good relations between peoples.

The historical significance of the spring holiday is reflected in the works of the classics of the East - Dovletmammet Azadi, Magtymguly Fragi, Nurmuhammet Andalib, Abu Reyhan Biruni, Omar Khayyam, Alisher Navoi, Abdyrakhman Jami, Firdousi, Mahmyt Kashgarly and others.

Novruz forms good qualities in a person’s soul and fosters selfless feelings, as well as love for nature, life and the world. This holiday, which is celebrated in the beautiful spring, has become a symbol of the renewal of nature and the rebirth of life.

Dear compatriots!

Based on a special Resolution of the General Assembly of the United Nations, March 21 was proclaimed “International Nowruz Day”. The traditions of the Nowruz holiday are included in the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Occupying a special place at the international level, this day contributes to the improvement of cultural and humanitarian traditions in the world, strengthening the bonds of friendship and brotherhood between peoples.

Independent Turkmenistan, being committed to the principles of permanent neutrality, effectively and consistently develops relations with the countries of the world, which is a priority of the country's foreign policy.

Various events, exhibitions, concerts held on the occasion of International Nowruz Day help promote cultural and humanitarian cooperation. The widespread celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of the great Eastern thinker and classical poet Magtymguly Fragi this year, whose motto is “The Fount of the Mind of Magtymguly Fragi,” increases the historical significance of the International Nowruz Day.

At the 39th meeting of the Permanent Council of Ministers of Culture of TURKSOY, held in Bursa in 2022, it was decided to proclaim 2024 as the “Year of the great poet and thinker of the Turkic world - Magtymguly Fragi”, and the ancient city of Anau as the “Cultural Capital of the Turkic World”. The opening ceremony of events in honor of awarding such a prestigious title to the city of Anau and the celebrations that will be organized jointly with TURKSOY in connection with the National Spring Holiday - International Nowruz Day, is a symbol of our country achieving new heights in political, social and cultural life. This is clearly demonstrated by the celebrations held in the spirit of friendship and brotherhood on the hospitable Turkmen land.

Dear compatriots!

Once again, I sincerely congratulate you on the National Spring Holiday - International Nowruz Day, widely celebrated in the spring in an atmosphere of great celebration! I wish you good health, family well-being and a happy life!

Let the motives of Novruz merge into the music of unity, peace and beauty, which will fill your hearts with inspiration and happiness!
