More about the time in Turkmenistan

Turkmenistan uses Turkmenistan Time TMT. TMT is UTC +0500. Turkmenistan's latitude and longitude is 40° 00' N and 60° 00' E. Therefore geographically Turkmenistan is in the wrong time zone. TMT should be UTC +0400 instead of +0500. As a result the sunrise in Turkmenistan is an hour “late”. Considering its latitude one would expect Turkmenistan to have a use for Daylight Savings Time, however DST isn’t observed in the country.
