Summary

On 26-27 November a two-day workshop for the benefit of thirteen participants from the Migration Service, Ministry of Interior, and Turkmenistan Airlines on the tools and templates for joining the Public Key Directory (PKD) of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) was organized by the Secretariat’s Transnational Threats Department/Action against Terrorism Unit, in co-operation with the Centre in Ashgabat.

The aim of the workshop was to enhance local capacities in preventing terrorists crossing borders undetected using false identities, and will result in concrete recommendations and steps for Turkmenistan to join the ICAO PKD.

This workshop built on the information provided during May’s seminar by covering all the necessary steps for joining the PKD.

Joining the ICAO PKD is a proactive approach in fighting international terrorism and preventing the cross-border movement of terrorists because it allows for fast and effective multilateral validation that an e-Passport is genuine.
