Niyazov warned that any official found guilty of falsifying figures will face criminal prosecution.
The Turkmen leader cited the Balkan and Ahal regions, whose governors he sacked in October for failing to meet this year's cotton targets.

He warned that a November 24 cabinet meeting will address those issues.
