Belarus, Turkmenistan to set up educational institutions together

07.12.2012 19:27

MINSK, 7 December (BelTA) – Belarus and Turkmenistan have plans to set up educational institutions together, which is envisaged in the intergovernmental academic cooperation agreement. The draft law on the ratification of the agreement is to be studied at the forthcoming session of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly, BelTA learnt from Valentina Leonenko, a member of the permanent commission for international affairs of the House of Representatives.

According to her, it is hard to talk about the number or type of such institutions. “The decisions will depend on a particular situation,” Valentina Leonenko said.

In line with the agreement, Belarus and Turkmenistan will exchange delegations of top officials and specialists of the education ministries, scientists and teachers, which is expected to promote the educational systems of the two countries. The agreement also provides for academic exchange of students. The exchange programs will be financed by the budgets of Belarus and Turkmenistan.

Valentina Leonenko informed that over the past five years the number of students from Turkmenistan studying in Belarus has soared from 100 to almost 6,000. According to the MP, this testifies to the high level of education in Belarus. Turkmenistan students choose mostly economic disciplines, like petrochemical engineering and mining. Foreign students, including those from Turkmenistan, feel pretty safe in Belarus, because there are no ethnic tensions here. However, certain difficulties might emerge during social and cultural adaptation. The ratification of the agreement will facilitate the adaptation process, the MP is convinced.

The intergovernmental agreement on academic cooperation between Belarus and Turkmenistan was signed in Minsk on 27 April 2012.

Talking about other bills to be discussed at the forthcoming session of the House of Representatives, Valentina Leonenko mentioned the draft law “Concerning amendments and additions to the Law of the Republic of Belarus “Concerning international agreements of the Republic of Belarus”. These amendments will optimize Belarus’ legislation in part of conclusion, execution, termination and abolition of international agreements, and will contribute to efficient fulfillment of international commitments and help expand contacts with other countries.
