Statement by the delegation of Turkmenistan at the Sustainable Energy for All Forum (6 June 2014, New York)

on .

 

Mr. Chairman,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Let me on behalf of the Government of Turkmenistan express my gratitude to the organizers of this Forum for the invitation provided to the delegation of our country giving us an opportunity to take part in this very important discussion. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

In September 2011, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched the Sustainable Energy for All initiative and shared his vision for how governments, business and civil society, working in partnership, can make sustainable energy for all a reality by 2030.

Secretary-General noted two urgent and interconnected challenges related to energy the world faces today.

Let me focus on one of them - energy access.

Universal access to energy is one of the ambitious Millennium Development Goals and in recognition of the importance of energy access for sustainable economic development, the UN-Energy group and new global Energy Access Practitioner Network have being launched.

One of the main challenges that access to basic energy resources facing today is stable, efficient and reliable energy transportation across the countries, regions and continents. Turkmenistan as one of the leading suppliers of energy resources which possesses the fourth largest reserves of hydrocarbon resources responsibly and consistently called for the establishment of a stable and reliable system of international energy supplies, elaboration of schemes and patterns of interaction in the global energy markets that are appropriate in view of the modern realities. Turkmenistan believes that today there is a need for consensus decisions, which would serve as a basis for cooperation on reliable and stable transit of energy. 

Mr. Chairman, 

The reality of the last decades have shown that the world is witnessing a complex, multifaceted process in geopolitics, causing new factors that are no less a threat to peace, stability and development than terrorism, extremism or armed conflicts.

Unpredictable and erratic jumps in energy prices are the main result of the instability of the system of international energy supplies on international markets. Geography routes of delivery becomes the dominant factor in sustainable development, the successful development of countries, regions and entire continents. 

Therefore in 2008, on the initiative of the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov the UN General Assembly at its 63rd session adopted a Resolution entitled «Reliable and stable transit of energy and its role in ensuring sustainable development and international cooperation» with co-sponsorship of 57 countries, including 5 permanent members of the Security Council. Such an impressive support has demonstrated the unity of international community in understanding global significance of the problem of energy supply and at the same time becoming an important step in establishing multilateral dialogue on this issue.

On April 2009 in accordance with this Resolution the capital of Turkmenistan Ashgabat hosted a High-level Conference on Reliable and Stable Transit of Energy and its Role in Ensuring Sustainable Development which brought together the UN Under-Secretary-General, OSCE Secretary-General, heads of a number of authoritative international organizations, high level governmental delegations, representatives of the major world energy companies, financial institutions, and international expert communities.

On 3-4 May 2010 and 17-18 October 2013 in Ashgabat the Government of Turkmenistan and the OSCE held important International conferences on regional co-operation for promoting stable and reliable energy within Eurasia.

Next important step have been on 17 May 2013 when General Assembly adopted the next resolution on Reliable and stable transit of energy co-sponsored by more than 70 countries.

The adoption of the resolution entitled “Reliable and stable transit of energy and its role in ensuring sustainable development and international cooperation”, no doubt, will be an important step on the way to solve one of the acute problems of sustainable development.

According to this resolution Turkmenistan will host a First International meeting of the experts in Turkmen capital in November 2014. Meeting will provide a basis for the exchange of international expert opinion on this issue, and create a major contribution to the preparation of report  of the UN  Secretary General. The Government of Turkmenistan will cover all the financial costs associated with holding a meeting of experts.

Let me invite all delegations to participate in this milestone meeting. We are confident that the meeting will promote a common approach to ensure reliable and stable supply of energy in the world today. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

Let me assure international community that Turkmenistan did, do and will do maximum efforts in order to meet one of the main challenges of global sustainable development - access to basic energy resources.  

Thank you for your attention!
