In Berlin, ISRS experts meet with Ambassador Michael Siebert, Director for Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia to exchange views on the new dynamics of regional cooperation in Central Asia, as well as current state and prospects of development of bilateral relations between Uzbekistan and Germany.
ISRS experts informed representatives of the German Ministry of foreign affairs about achievements of the Republic of Uzbekistan in the framework of implementing “Strategy for Actions 2017-2021”. In this regard, special attention was paid to the priorities of internal and foreign policy of Tashkent.
The German side expressed its support for policy pursued by Uzbekistan together with the states of Central Asia to strengthen neighborly relations and to develop regional cooperation. Adoption of resolution of the UN General Assembly on June 22, 2018 “Strengthening regional and international cooperation to ensure peace, stability and sustainable development in the Central Asia region” has become a vivid example of recognition by the world community of the importance of ongoing changes in the region.
In addition, German side highly evaluated the efforts of Tashkent to promote a peaceful settlement of the conflict in Afghanistan and to expand participation in the socio-economic reconstruction of the country.
In connection with the development of a new EU partnership strategy for Central Asia, Germany intends to develop actively multi-faceted cooperation with Uzbekistan. The mutual visits of delegation at the highest and expert level, planned for the near future, are designed to give a new impetus for expanding bilateral cooperation.
ISRS experts congratulated ambassador M.Siebert on his next appointment to a responsible position at German Foreign Office and wished him success in all his future endeavors.
