Official Turkmen Delegation Did Not Participate in OSCE Meeting
On November 8-9, in Vienna, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) held a Supplementary Human Dimension Meeting, “Freedom of Assembly and Association.” Turkmenistan did not send its representative to the meeting, despite the fact that Turkmenistan participates in the OSCE. As it turned out, Turkmenistan’s Foreign Ministry submitted an official note to the OSCE leadership last year stating that official Turkmen representatives would only attend OSCE events if Nurmukhammed Hanamov and Farid Tukhbatullin would be denied admission. Tukhbatullin had registered as a participant of the meeting in advance and no other Turkmen NGO attended the meeting.
