Visit of high level delegation led by Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan to India (August 20-24, 2017)
A high-level delegation from Uzbekistan, led by H.E. Mr Abdulaziz Kamilov, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan, is visiting India on 20-24 August 2107. The delegation includes H.E. Mr Elyor Ganiev, Minister for Foreign Trade of Uzbekistan, senior representatives from the Government of Uzbekistan, and Chairmen and representatives from several Government Associations and Corporations.
The visit of the delegation from Uzbekistan is taking place following the recent discussions between PM and H.E. Mr Shavkat Mirziyoyev, President of the Republic of Uzbekistan in Astana on the sidelines of the SCO Heads of States meeting. Both leaders had decided to further strengthen and expand bilateral cooperation in all areas, particularly trade and economic.
The Uzbek delegation leader and members have a series of meetings and interactions planned for the next four days. H.E.Mr. Kamilov and EAM would hold talks on 22 August. H.E.Mr. Kamilov is also scheduled to call on Hon’ble Vice President.
India and Uzbekistan have close and friendly relations based on centuries of historical and cultural linkages. Our relationship was elevated to Strategic Partnership during the visit of late President Islam Karimov in 2011. PM visited Uzbekistan in 2015 and 2016. MOS (MJA) visited Uzbekistan last year to pay respects to late President Karimov. This year we are celebrating 25 years of establishment of diplomatic relations with Uzbekistan. We hope that discussions during the visit of this delegation will help in identifying new areas of cooperation and take our relationship to a higher level.
