The magazine will not only widely cover the activities of the Committee for Interethnic Relations and Friendly Relations with Foreign Countries, but also talk about the traditions and customs of representatives of various ethnic and sub-ethnic groups living in our country. In particular, the “Face to Face” section describes strong ties of friendship established through the efforts of the Committee with our compatriots living in the USA, Germany and Russia, and the “Close-up” section provides information about the life and work of the great writer Chingiz Aitmatov.

The first issue contains articles on social and political reforms carried out in Uzbekistan, cultural heritage, the lives of our compatriots abroad, stars of arts and sports, as well as cultural and educational events taking place in the country.
The magazine will be published four times a year in Uzbek, Russian and English. There is no doubt that it will have a wide audience not only in our country, but also abroad. During the presentation, detailed information was given about the creative plans of the new periodical.
