The President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov proposed to pay special attention to the expansion of ties between the youth of the states at the summit of the Cooperation Council of the Heads of Turkic Speaking States.
«Upbringing of the youth of the related states in the spirit of respect for the history, culture, language and traditions of the fraternal peoples and interreligious tolerance is of particular importance in the modern geopolitical conditions. This is the only way to block the radicalization of young people, fanaticism, violence and the adoption of an alien ideology by them. This will resist various destructive forces that negatively influence the consciousness of the young people,» said Sooronbai Jeenbekov.
In order to strengthen the interest of the youth in innovative projects and entrepreneurship, I initiate joint implementation of special economic and humanitarian projects.Sooronbai Jeenbekov
To this end, the president proposed to create a special working group of the secretariat of the Turkic Council.
In addition, the head of state called for further creation of favorable conditions for the development of cooperation between the Turkic speaking states in the spheres of national sports and ethnic culture. In particular, he noted the unique and unifying project initiated by Kyrgyzstan — the World Nomad Games.
«I want to express my gratitude to the heads of state, who took part in the official opening of the 3rd World Nomad Games, which are held under the patronage of UNESCO. We propose, with the support of the Turkic speaking countries, to further distribute and develop the World Nomad Games. The member states of the Turkic Council not only spread the notion of ethnic sports and ethnic culture around the world, but also managed to make these directions very popular,» said Sooronbai Jeenbekov.
The President said that various projects were being offered in different parts of the world, repeating the World Nomad Games. «I call for unanimous support for the Games, which have proved their viability, have been successfully held for the third time and are noted in the UN resolution. The motto of the Games is: Unity of Power! Unity of spirit!» he stressed.
The head of state noted that an agreement was reached with the Turkish side on holding the 4th Games in 2020 in Turkey.
«I am confident that, given Turkey’s capabilities, a new impetus will be given to the development of this unique project,» said Sooronbai Jeenbekov.
