Turkmenistan, Ashgabat, Jan. 28 / Trend , E.Hasanov /
The U.S. believes that opening of the first Internet-centre in Turkmenistan's national library is a contribution in achievement of reforms of President Gurbanguly Berimuhamedov , the U.S. embassy in Turkmenistan said.
At early presidency Berdimuhamedov promised to ensure access to Internet, but nothing was done in this direction. For two years private users were re-connected to Internet in Turkmenistan's first Internet cafe, and wireless Internet access has become available in one of cellular company.
"Access to Internet in the National Library contributes to the achievement of objectives of reforms of President Berdimuhamedov and assist Turkmenistan to recovery and democratization," the U.S. embassy in Turkmenistan quoted Richard Milce , U.S. temporary charge d'affaires , as saying
The National Library has reached the international standard. Opening of Internet center had a technical assistance to the U.S. Embassy at the expense of grants by the Information and Culture Department. The National Library has been connected to fiber-optic Internet network "Virtual Silk Road" ( Virtual Silk Highway), which is sponsored by NATO and is administered by the Supreme Council of Turkmenistan on science and technology. The National Library has provided space for the resource center and eighteen computers connected to the Internet and intended for use by visitors to the library
