Uzbekistan happy for Belarus’ successful reforms, vibrant development

MINSK, 1 August (BelTA) – Talking to the media on 1 August Uzbekistan President Shavkat Mirziyoyev hailed Belarus’ successful development and the head of state’s personal contribution to it, BelTA has learned.

Peacefully and sustainably developing Belarus is an example to follow for many countries. We are sincerely happy for the country’s successful reforms and vibrant development. Thanks to a clever policy of Aleksandr Grigoryevich [Lukashenko], Belarus’ potential has been redoubled in many areas. We can see it and rejoice at these successes. The main thing is that a considerable improvement to the level of living standards has been secured in the country,” he stressed.

Shavkat Mirziyoyev expressed gratitude to Aleksandr Lukashenko for his contribution to friendship and cooperation between the countries. “Our relations are fraternal. Our friendship, the political will of the two presidents helped address the issues we had. Today we are looking at an absolutely different direction in the development of our relations. It is quite a difficult but the only correct path to follow,” the Uzbekistan president said.

In his words, some $300 million worth of contracts and agreements were signed during the Forum of Regions and Uzbekistan’s exhibition of products. “These are big figures,” the president said and added that when he took the office the relations with Belarus started almost from scratch. “We had no contracts of the kind. This happened only thanks to the political will of the two presidents. This shows that there are wide opportunities for building up partnerships between our regions,” he said.

Shavkat Mirziyoyev expressed confidence that the visit to Belarus would “add a powerful impetus to bilateral relations, expand the partnership with new content.” The parties outlined future tasks and agreed to expand cooperation in the political, trade, economic, innovative, cultural and humanitarian areas.

“We must implement everything we have agreed upon. This is going to be the most difficult year. We need not only to keep the trade at the present level but also do our best to increase it,” the Uzbekistan leader said. MPs of the two countries will monitor the implementation of the agreements.

Shavkat Mirziyoyev invited Aleksandr Lukashenko to pay an official visit to Uzbekistan to get familiar with the operation of the joint companies.

The president of Uzbekistan also extended greetings to Belarus on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation from the Nazis, and thanked the country for the erection of a bust to Uzbek poet Alisher Navaiy in Minsk.
