Ashgabat hosts two days International conference on migration and statelessness

The International Conference on Migration and Statelessness: Identifying Challenges and the Way Forward organized by the Government of Turkmenistan jointly with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and International Organization for Migration (IOM) took place in Ashgabat on 23-24 June 2014. The representatives of 32 countries and 16 international organizations participated at the Forum. 

The participants of the conference in their statements highlighted the importance of conducting the result-oriented measures including the legal reforms and international cooperation for the solution of the pressing issues in the field of migration and statelessness. The reports touched upon the issues related to the identification of the practical measures on implementation of the program on migration and statelessness set forth in the high-level dialogue on UN International Migration and Development issue held in 2013 and Regional Conference on prevention and reduction of Statelessness and protection of the stateless citizens in Central Asia held in 2009.

During the plenary sessions on 24 June the following issues were considered:  the decision of the existing statelessness situations through the legal and policy reforms and campaigns on granting the citizenship; prevention of the new situations of statelessness through legislative, political and administrative reforms; successful approaches of identifying the statelessness; development of national frameworks for protection of the stateless persons; partnership and multilateral approaches.

 

In the final session of the conference it was summed up and adopted "Statement of Co-Chairs of the International Conference on Migration and Statelessness: identifying challenges and way forward," where the importance of continuation of the efforts to develop and implement the policies related to the migration in accordance with human rights norms and obligations on national, regional and international levels were stressed. Noting that statelessness is one of the main global challenges of the 21st century, the participants evaluated the efforts of UNHCR in raising public awareness related on the issues related to the statelessness and their decision. The participants of the forum expressed their confidence that the conference will contribute to the strengthening of multilateral cooperation in the field of international protection of migrants, refugees and stateless persons.

Turkmenistan marks World No Tobacco Day

on .

World No Tobacco Day was marked in Turkmenistan. As the Turkmenistan.ru correspondent reports from Ashgabat, the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control has become one of the most widely recognized conventions in the UN history. Turkmenistan joined the Convention in spring 2011.

It should be recalled that Turkmenistan took active part in the development of this international instrument, and Turkmenistan's experience was not only widely used in its preparation but also repeatedly recommended for replication in other countries.

For example, the Convention emphasizes the need for a ban on tobacco advertising that was introduced in Turkmenistan under the State Program “Health.” Turkmenistan's position in this matter as well as Turkmenistan’s ban on promotion of sales and sponsorship of tobacco companies have been recognized by WHO member states as exemplary for other countries.

In addition, the fundamental provisions of the Convention relate to protection of children and adolescents from exposure and tobacco consumption, prevention and treatment of tobacco addiction, promoting establishment of tobacco free zones, knowledge and exchange of information at national and international levels, protection of vulnerable groups and others.

Turkmenistan was one of the first in the CIS to begin fighting the use of tobacco products by introducing high fine in 2000 for smoking in public places.

Nuclear-weapon States signed the Protocol to the Treaty on a Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone in Central Asia

Five nuclear powers: Russia, Great Britain, China, the United States and France  should without delay ratify the Protocol on security guarantees to the Treaty on a nuclear-free zone in Central Asia that they signed on Tuesday. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon made this statement. According to him, this achievement has become “a concrete step” aimed at the creation of the first such zone in the Northern Hemisphere.

The United Nations Secretary-General welcomes the signing of the Protocol . The Protocol commits the nuclear-weapon States to respect the application of the Treaty in Central Asia as well as not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against the parties to the Treaty,” according to a UN statement. 

“When the Treaty entered into force on 21 March 2009, it created the world’s first nuclear-weapon-free zone located entirely in the Northern Hemisphere. The Secretary-General congratulates the five Central Asia States: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan on their achievement today of the first concrete step towards theconsolidation of the zone. He hopes that the nuclear-weapon States ratify the Protocol without delay,” it says. “The Secretary-General reiterates his strong support for the further establishment of nuclear-weapon-free zones, which contribute to the strengthening of global norms against nuclear weapons to the benefit of non-proliferation, regional security and disarmament,” it adds.

It is remarkable that the protocol to the treaty has been signed today by all nuclear-weapon states simultaneously. This is the first such example in the world. 

There are four other treaties on nuclear-weapons-free zones - in Latin America and the Caribbean, the South Pacific, Southeast Asia and Africa. Mongolia's self-declared nuclear-free status has also been recognised through a United Nations General Assembly resolution.
