Uzbekistan Today (English) - - FRONT PAGE -

Pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan Shavkat Mirziy­oyev re­ceived on Novem­ber 9 the Deputy As­sis­tant to the Pres­i­dent of the United States, Se­nior Direc­tor for South and Cen­tral Asia at the Na­tional Se­cu­rity Coun­cil Lisa Cur­tis, who ar­rived in our coun­try as the head of a rep­re­sen­ta­tive del­e­ga­tion for par­tic­i­pa­tion in the in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence on “Cen­tral Asia: One Past and a Com­mon Fu­ture, co­op­er­a­tion for sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment and mu­tual pros­per­ity”.

The Head of our state, wel­com­ing the guest, noted that at present Uzbek­istan – US di­a­logue has ac­quired a con­struc­tive and sta­ble char­ac­ter. The visit of Uzbek­istan del­e­ga­tion to the United States in Septem­ber and meet­ings with the Pres­i­dent of the USA Don­ald Trump, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Amer­i­can busi­ness, demon­strated the de­ci­sive spirit of the sides for prac­ti­cal ex­pan­sion and deep­en­ing of bi­lat­eral re­la­tions, pri­mar­ily in tradeeco­nomic and in­vest­ment spheres.

As it was noted, the co­in­ci­dence and sim­i­lar­ity of ap­proaches to the so­lu­tion of a num­ber of key in­ter­na­tional prob­lems and coun­ter­act­ing con­tem­po­rary chal­lenges and threats make it pos­si­ble to sig­nif­i­cantly strengthen co­op­er­a­tion in these cur­rent ar­eas.

At the meet­ing, views and as­sess­ments were ex­changed on de­vel­op­ment of the sit­u­a­tion in Afghanistan and the re­gion in the con­text of en­sur­ing se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity.

The sides con­firmed their in­ter­est in that Cen­tral Asia re­mained the ter­ri­tory of equal and mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial co­op­er­a­tion. In this re­gard, as em­pha­sized, the ini­tia­tives and spe­cific steps of the lead­er­ship of Uzbek­istan aimed at ex­pand­ing good­neigh­borly re­la­tions and strength­en­ing mu­tual trust be­tween the coun­tries of the re­gion are of great im­por­tance.

Lisa Cur­tis noted that the lead­er­ship of the USA highly ap­pre­ci­ates the role of Uzbek­istan in en­sur­ing regional se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity, as well as con­firmed the in­ter­est of the Amer­i­can side in giv­ing new dy­nam­ics to long-term re­la­tions with our coun­try.
