    US pop star Jennifer Lopez, or J.Lo, performed Saturday at 56th birthday of Turkmen leader Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov during lavish celebrations at a Caspian Sea resort.

    TURKMENBASHI , June 29 (RIA Novosti) – US pop star Jennifer Lopez, or J.Lo, performed Saturday at 56th birthday of Turkmen leader Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov during lavish celebrations at a Caspian Sea resort.

    The concert of a dozen of pop stars from around the world ended with J.Lo signing “Happy Birthday, Mister President!” Her visit to the Central Asia was reportedly organized by China's National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), which pipes Turkmen natural gas to China.

    Other signers at the party included flamboyant Russia pop star of Bulgarian descent Philipp Kirkorov who said his birthday wishes to Berdymukhamedov in Turkmen language.

    Berdymukhamedov, a dentist by profession, has been heading Turkmenistan - a former Soviet republic rich in natural resources and described by Human Rights Watch as one of the world's most repressive regimes - since 2006.
