President Gurbangulu Berdimuhammedov charged the Cabinet of Ministers to prepare and to conduct an international scientific forum dedicated to environmental issues in Ashgabat.

A governmental meeting discussed the issue in connection with implementing a project on creating an artificial sea in the Karakum desert, an official Turkmen source reported.

The Turkmen government attaches great importance to this project, referring to the development of the agricultural sector and ensuring the ecological well-being and effective utilization of water resources.

"We must not forget about the preservation of this unique ecosystem, which has shaped for centuries," said the Turkmen leader speaking about the Karakum desert.

Berdimuhammedov discussed the inclusion of the Turkmen desert to the World Heritage List at a UNESCO meeting held recently in Paris.
