A draft on cleanup of soil at the Caspian coastal zone of Turkmenistan was presented at a meeting of the Turkmen Cabinet of Ministers.
The project is planned to be implemented by a consortium of Turkmen enterprises “Gazyk”, “Hazar Balyk” and UK’s Global Ecological Ventures Limited, the Turkmen government reported.
The Caspian Sea region is a unique natural complex with a single ecosystem, Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said at the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers.
In his opinion, flora and fauna of the Caspian Sea require a very careful and prudent approach.
Turkmenistan strictly observes all the obligations undertaken regarding environmental protection, and implements major projects in this sphere together with the United Nations Environment Program, the Caspian Environment Program, the Global Environment Facility and other international agencies, he added.
