Strengthening good-neighborly relations and partnership with the Central Asian states remains one of the priority areas. Uzbekistan brings to a qualitatively new level multifaceted cooperation with Russia, China, the United States, as well as the countries of Europe, South Asia, the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East.
As the President said, “we must be open to the world, and the world is open to us – this is the requirement of modern development”.
