Turkmenistan hosted the Days of Culture of Tajikistan on November 23-25. In an interview with CentralAsia.news, a presenter of the Tajikistan TV Channel Nargis Abdurakhmanova said the guests from the friendly country were impressed by the beauty of sunny Ashgabat.
Mrs. Abdurakhmanova, is this your first trip to Turkmenistan?
Yes, this is my first trip to Turkmenistan and I hope to visit the country again. We came to the republic to hold the Days of Culture of Tajikistan. Our singers and dance groups performed in the concerts as part of this event. I think that the people of Turkmenistan liked these performances.
What can you say about the capital of Turkmenistan?
Ashgabat impressed us. We really liked it, a sunny and very beautiful city. We were surprised by the transformation of the capital of Turkmenistan.
How do you assess the event in terms of further cultural contacts?
Such events as days of culture brings the Tajik and Turkmen peoples very close together. Therefore, this friendly thread will become even stronger.
What is your impression of Turkmenistan?
I am very glad that I am in the republic and I have performed for the Turkmen people. I also want to express special gratitude to President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov and President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon. Thanks to the efforts and support of the leaders of the two countries, such important cultural events are held. We are looking forward to our Turkmen friends with a return visit to Tajikistan. Thank you for your kindness and hospitality.
