I need to emphasise the contribution of our esteemed President, whose deeds are a true inspiration and a perfect example for every Turkmen, towards the creation of a healthy and prosperous community.” The Ashgabat 2017 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games will take place in the Turkmen capital between 17 and 27 September, at the state-of-the-art Ashgabat Olmpic Complex.
