The head of the Academy took part in PIAC


On August 27, the 61st Permanent International Altaistic Conference (PIAC) opened in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. The TWESCO president Darkhan Kydyrali participated in the opening ceremony of the Conference, which will continue until August 31.

President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbay Jeenbekov took part in the Permanent International Altaistic Conference, held in Ala-Archa state residence in Bishkek, where he emphasized importance of Altaic Studies: "The study of rich culture, traditions and customs of Altai civilization contribute to strengthening friendship and cooperation among peoples. Taking into account our common historical and cultural heritage, we need to be able to transform them into new resources that are necessary for the development of Altai peoples."

Speaking at the Conference, President of the TWESCO D. Kydyrali told about the activities on Altaistics carried out by the Academy. The head of the Academy also noted that Altaic science is developing not only in linguistic direction, but also in the fields of folklore and archeology. There are a lot of successes achieved by the Turkic Academy in these areas. As a result of archaeological excavations in Altai, a settlement of the II-VI centuries, considered by scientists as the famous land of Ergenekon, was found. It was discovered that people lived there at least for 400 years. An Eternal stone was found in Mongolia's Shiveet Ulaan complex, where tamgas of 60 Turkic tribes of Elteris Kutlyk Kaghan period were carved. The above-mentioned objects are also important for Altaistics. Folklore and archaeological artifacts give us an opportunity to look at the spiritual and material aspects of the interaction of Altai peoples.

Nowadays, the Academy publishes scientific journal on "Altaic studies. Turkology. Mogolian Studies".

TWESCO is among organizers of the 61st PIAC - Permanent International Altaistic Conference.
