In the Forums Complex, a meeting took place between the Acting President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, and the President of the Republic of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko.

Belarus sees Uzbekistan as its main economic partner in Central Asia. Cooperation between the two countries is developing on the basis of principles of friendship and mutual interest. The treaty on economic cooperation between the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Republic of Belarus for 2008-2017 and a programme directed towards its implementation is consistently being carried out.

The Acting President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, expressed gratitude to the President of the Republic of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, for the visit to Uzbekistan with the aim of paying a tribute of respect to the memory of the First President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Islam Karimov.

It was noted that friendly relations between the two nations would continue to develop steadily and that cooperation between the two counties needed to be raised to a new level.

The President of the Republic of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, emphasized that the First President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Islam Karimov, devoted all his life to service to his people and the prosperity of his Homeland and that today Uzbekistan is a state with a developed economy where peace and stability reign. At this difficult time following Islam Karimov’s passing away, the nation of Uzbekistan again displayed their wisdom, high culture and unity. The high-profile visitor noted that it was a great honour for him to visit this sacred land.

At the recent 71st session of the UN General Assembly, participants observed a minute of silence to honour the memory of Islam Karimov, which is also clear evidence of the international prestige of Uzbekistan’s First President.

During the meeting, there was an exchange of views on issues of the further development of cooperation between Uzbekistan and Belarus in various spheres.

With this, the visit of the President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, to Uzbekistan concluded.
