09.02.2018. At the February 9 meeting of the government, Vice-premier B. Abdyeva, who oversees the sphere of culture, reported on new finds, discovered in Dandanakan fortress in Mary velayat. Archaeological research on this medieval monument, located 30 kilometers west of Mary city is conducted in the framework of work on studying the historical and cultural heritage of the Great Silk Road.

Last spring, a group of specialists and archaeologists of the National Directorate of Turkmenistan for the protection, study and restoration of historical and cultural monuments, state historical and cultural reserves "Ancient Merv" and "Old Serakhs" launched research.

Unique finds discovered on a large area in the south-eastern part of the fortress were the result of the autumn archaeological season. There were found a fortified wall of burnt bricks and several rooms and outside the fortress there was a water pipe and ceramic pipes built of burnt bricks.

In addition, during the archaeological excavations medieval structures of burnt bricks were found, differing from the usual residential buildings by the arrangement of rooms. In one of them, numerous fragments of glassware and preserved original glass vessels were found, as well as several small metal tools. The results of comparative laboratory studies allow us to state that these objects are medical instruments of medieval healers.

As it was reported, after carrying out the necessary restoration and conservation works, they will become priceless exhibits of the museums of our country. Currently, these artifacts are stored in the State Historical and Cultural Reserve "Ancient Merv", where the primary conservation works are being conducted.

In this regard, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov noted that the finds of Dandanakan fortress are of great importance and shed light on the ancient history of our country, being evidence of the high culture of Turkmen, their contribution to the development of sciences and to the universal civilization. The work carried out by scientists and archaeologists in this direction should be appreciated at true value.

08.02.2018. The polypropylene storage and dispatch terminal is one of the liveliest places in the cargo district in the Turkmenbashi International Sea Port. Summing up the year of 2017, over 60,000 tons of valuable products were shipped. On the average, about 200 tons of granulated petro-chemicals that are of great demand in our country and abroad, are delivered there from the Turkmenbashi complex of oil refineries.

The major part of export consignments is shipped to clients by sea. Cargo vessels of different countries arrive to the port to ship the high-quality goods.

At present, in the port, polypropylene is loaded into the holds of the Musa Jalil dry cargo ship of the Russian Federation. Polypropylene packed in valve bags, laid on pallets is transferred from shore to the vessel. Each pallet has 40 bags with a total weight of one ton that significantly facilitates not only the loading works, but also the calculation of the cargo loaded on board. Upon completion of the loading, the Russian motor ship will take to the open sea and ship about two tons of polypropylene, known under the Turkmenpylene brand, to the port of Olya in the Astrakhan region.
