Open Appeal of Participants of the Second International Congress “Cultural Heritage of Uzbekistan: Path to Dialogue among Peoples and Countries”
Deeply esteemed Mr. President!
On behalf of the participants of the Second International Congress “Cultural Heritage of Uzbekistan: Path to Dialogue among Peoples and Countries”, allow us to express deep respect for Your tireless activity aimed at shaping a new Uzbekistan. Today, during the Second International Congress in St. Petersburg, we have had an opportunity to get a glance at the latest outcomes of Your work towards radically transforming Uzbekistan and delivering decent environment for the development of fundamental science and culture. Especially delighting are Your efforts directed at preserving the rich cultural heritage of the Uzbek people, which itself made an invaluable contribution to the evolution of world civilization. We are well aware of Your concept of civilized Islam as a religion of kindness, peace and tolerance, and we support You in Your determined work to implement it.
A significant achievement in the study and popularization of the invaluable spiritual wealth of the Uzbek people is the project “Cultural Heritage of Uzbekistan in World’s Collections” supported by You, which provides for the collection, study and publication of art objects, manuscripts and documents related to the history of the peoples of Uzbekistan. The scheme has already helped publish 15 albums; more than 20 documentaries have been shot. The project has united the endeavors of Uzbekistan’s academic community that has fruitfully fostered its own scientific school, as well as those of researchers from Russia, Britain, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, the United States, Japan, Turkey and many other countries.
In May 2017, the First International Congress “Cultural Heritage of Uzbekistan: Path to Dialogue among Nations and Countries” was held in Tashkent and Samarkand, which in excess of 300 scientists from across the world took part in. We are confident that this project will serve to strengthen mutual understanding between peoples and countries, as well as enhance the country’s cultural image.
Today, an important result of the Second International Congress in St. Petersburg was the setting up of the World Society for the Preservation, Study and Promotion of the Cultural Heritage of Uzbekistan. We express our confidence that this newly established international organization uniting all those who cherish the history and culture of Uzbekistan will become a reliable assistant in Your tireless work to further popularize the cultural heritage of the ancient land of Uzbekistan.
We wish You a robust health and prosperity to the independent Uzbekistan!
