The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan Vladimir Norov met with the Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres, in New York.

According to Uzbekistan MFA, Vladimir Norov stressed that Uzbekistan considers the UN as a universal and reliable international structure for maintaining stability and sustainable development, protecting human rights around the world.

The intensification of Uzbekistan’s participation in the activities of the UN and its specialized agencies in recent years was noted with satisfaction. At the initiative of the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev, five resolutions of the UN General Assembly were adopted in various directions. A high-level delegation of the United Nations took part in the SCO Summit in Samarkand last week.

António Guterres highly appreciated the political will and determination of the leadership of Uzbekistan to carry out progressive large-scale transformations that are irreversible. The commitment of the UN side to providing full support to Uzbekistan in the way of implementing the policy of openness and reforms was emphasized.

The Secretary-General welcomed the dynamically expanding cooperation between Uzbekistan and the UN. António Guterres expressed support for Uzbekistan’s efforts to mitigate the effects of the drying up of the Aral Sea, improve the level and quality of life of the population of the Aral Sea region, and build modern housing, social and industrial infrastructure facilities in the region.

It was noted that the UN is ready to fully support projects promoted by Uzbekistan to strengthen interregional connectivity, including the construction of the Termez – Mazar-i-Sharif – Kabul – Peshawar railway.

Following the meeting, an agreement was reached to continue close contact on all issues of mutual interest.
