Priority in Uzbekistan's foreign policy – countries of Central Asia

Uzbekistan has determined the priority in foreign policy, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Uzbekistan in Kyrgyzstan Komil Rashidov said today at a press conference.

According to him, the president of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev announced that he focuses on the countries of Central Asia — Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan. The definition of boundaries and distribution of water resources is inextricably linked with the region. On August 11, the conference «Central Asia — the main priority of Uzbekistan’s foreign policy», supported by UNDP and the OSCE was held in Tashkent.

«Any major regional transport, communication and energy projects can’t be realized without the participation of the countries of the region. Peoples unite common spiritual values, common past,» Komil Rashidov said.
