Uzbekistan welcomes international political initiatives of Turkmenistan

Speaking to the media following the Turkmen-Uzbek talks, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev said that Uzbekistan welcomes all constructive initiatives of Turkmenistan and personally Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.

The Uzbek leader highly appreciated the offer of his Turkmen counterpart to organize a nationwide Afghan dialogue under the aegis of the UN in the political space of Turkmenistan, which should give a new impetus to the stabilization of the situation in Afghanistan.

The Uzbek leader stressed that he warmly welcomed the initiatives of the Turkmen leader during the “one on one” meeting, in particular, the proposals on creating new forms of multilateral political dialogue in Central Asia that would take place on a systematic basis.

Mirziyoyev said that the next meeting of the heads of state of Central Asia will be held in a new format and will be much more effective due to the proposals voiced by President Berdimuhamedov.

“These proposals have a very good foundation and base. I think these are politically correct proposals, which we will work on at the level of the Foreign Ministry,” Mirziyoyev said.
