More recently, there have been new clashes with the use of weapons. And, although this time they were quickly stopped, the frequency of such conflicts continues to be alarming. The leaders of both republics do not cease to assert that the causes of these clashes will soon be eliminated. But this has been happening for a year now.

And, apparently, the reason here is not only that the leadership of the republics does not really want to reach a compromise through mutual concessions, but also that some foreign policy players are interested in continuing instability. And hardly anyone doubts who the main beneficiary is here. As stated just the other day Former Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan Djoomart Otorbaev, Central Asia is dominated not by Russia and China, no matter how much certain circles would like it, but by the West – the European Union and the United States. For which the better, the cloudier the water. Fortunately, it is in such troubled waters that it is much easier to eliminate and weaken competitors from among other states.

It is in this, according to many experts, that the interest of the United States lies, which fuels many conflicts in the countries of Central Asia. Experts talk about Washington’s involvement not only in these aggravations, but also in the smoldering and periodically flashing Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region of Tajikistan, and in the unrest this January In Kazakhstan found a trail of American “specialists” in coups.

And in the near future, Turkmenistan may become a new testing ground for applying such efforts. Since the new president of the country, Serdar Berdimuhamedov, who replaced his father in this post, took the first active steps in the foreign policy sphere.

Most recently, he made his first foreign visit. Typically, the destination during such a trip is a landmark to indicate the priorities of the country. And it turned out to be Moscow. June 10 Serdar Berdimuhamedov Meets in the Russian capital with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The event is really significant, because for a long time Turkmenistan was such a closed thing in itself, and relations between our countries were at the level of good neighbors, but did not develop as they could.

The talks between Putin and Berdymukhammedov moved them from that point. The presidents agreed to work together in energy, civil aviation, ecology, agriculture and other sectors. Putin remarked that Russia and Turkmenistan closely interact within the framework of the Commonwealth of Independent States and “attach great importance to joint work with the Caspian states”, and also welcomed the growing interest of Ashgabat in the integration processes within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

Less than two weeks have passed and already in Turkmenistan, Serdar Berdimuhamedov received a member of the board, President of the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) Hou Qijun. And at this meeting, it was also about expanding and deepening cooperation. This cannot but disturb the United States, which has officially designated the PRC as its main geopolitical adversary, especially if one takes into account the wealth of Turkmenistan in such a strategic raw material as natural gas. And not only in terms of cooperation with China, but also with other states in the regions of Central and Southeast Asia. By the way, taking into account these factors, the suspension of the implementation of the mega-project for the construction of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India gas pipeline is not accidental. Simultaneously with the Chinese mega-project “One Belt – One Road”, Ashgabat is trying to implement a strategy to revive the Great Silk Road, which also does not arouse much sympathy in Washington.

In this regard, Washington may even welcome Turkey’s promotion of the Organization of Turkic States and especially its military component. In words, advocating the unification of the Turkic peoples and states into a single whole, in reality, Ankara pursues only its own goals and creates difficulties for Turkmenistan in relations with Iran and Tajikistan. Mono-national integration, which is one of the main components of the Turkish project, will inevitably lead to an aggravation of inter-ethnic contradictions. And this is the same play that the United States regularly plays in all regions of the world with unfailing success. Recall that it was extremely successfully played for the collapse of the USSR.

And the United States does not really need an independent, resource-rich Turkmenistan. Unlike obedient satellite.

What can be countered with a strategy of such destructive impact from across the ocean? The most logical thing in this case is to unite within the framework of other international structures. For example, any of the international organizations of the SCO, the CSTO or the same EAEU can become it. A characteristic common feature of each of them is the fact that they do not impose any restrictions in the field of human rights, freedom of speech, cultural or confessional restrictions. Each of the countries implements domestic policy issues without any outside interference, trying to ensure stability, for which, in particular, the “Central Asia plus Russia” mechanism has been launched.

But at the same time, in the same Eurasian Economic Union, one of the main priorities is to establish such mutually beneficial cooperation, which provides the most maximum and effective solutions for the development of domestic markets, expanding its own exports and attracting investment resources.

Which, by the way, can become a very important factor for the same Turkmenistan in the context of the impending global economic crisis, which is already being recorded in the West (and then they will obviously not care about the Central Asian republics, except perhaps in terms of plundering them even more harshly and trying to solve their problems at their expense) and already gaining momentum due to, among other things, conflict in Ukraine food crisis.
