AKIPRESS.COM - The 79th session of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) took place in Bangkok (Thailand). The resolution of this Commission on the establishment of a special United Nations program for the Aral Sea basin was adopted at the initiative of Turkmenistan.

Azerbaijan, Armenia, China, Singapore, Turkey and the Philippines were the co-authors of the document along with Turkmenistan.

This first resolution, initiated by Turkmenistan within the framework of ESCAP, includes the results of the Summit of the Heads of the founding states of the International Fund for Saving the Aral Sea, held in the Avaza tourist zone in Turkmenbashi on August 24, 2018, as well as international consultations on the development of a special program of the Organization United Nations for the Aral Sea Basin.

The adoption of the current ESCAP resolution is a major step towards the creation of a special mechanism that will be aimed at consistently resolving issues related to the Aral Sea issues within the UN, the Foreign Ministry of Turkmenistan noted.
