  • Acknowledged harm

Turkmenistan has acknowledged the harm caused by the use of explosive weapons in populated areas (EWIPA) and committed to action against it. 


As a member of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, Turkmenistan aligned with World Humanitarian Summit Core Commitments to “Uphold the Norms that Safeguard Humanity” in May 2016, including the commitment “to promote and enhance the protection of civilians and civilian objects, especially in the conduct of hostilities, for instance by working to prevent civilian harm resulting from the use of wide-area explosive weapons in populated areas, and by sparing civilian infrastructure from military use in the conduct of military operations.”[1]

Turkmenistan did not participate in any meetings about the subject or endorsed any public statement on the issue.
