Presidents of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev and Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Zhaparov held a briefing for media representatives.
The President of Uzbekistan sincerely thanked the President and the people of Kyrgyzstan for the traditionally warm and cordial welcome.
“It is symbolic that our state visit is taking place in the year of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan”, Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
The Leader of Uzbekistan highly appreciated the results of the high-level meetings, held in a trusting and constructive spirit. He noted that the parties discussed in detail the key areas of multifaceted interaction and made specific decisions to deepen it.
It was emphasized that a truly historic event in bilateral relations was the conclusion of the Treaty on Separate Sections of the Uzbekistan – Kyrgyzstan State Border.
“A complete settlement of the border delimitation issue will certainly play an important role in the development of bilateral cooperation and border exchanges, will contribute to strengthening stability and security in our region”, Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
One of the important documents adopted following the talks was the Declaration on Comprehensive Strategic Partnership. As the President of Uzbekistan noted, this is the beginning of a new stage in the development of multifaceted cooperation in the interests of our countries and peoples.
The most important priority in collaboration is the expansion of trade and industrial cooperation. In recent years, the trade turnover between the countries has grown sevenfold, reaching $1.3 billion.
The governments of the countries have been tasked with bringing the trade turnover up to $2 billion, including through active import substitution and the creation of shopping centers.
The successful implementation of this goal will be served by the contracts and agreements signed during the previous business forum for $1.6 billion.
Among the major cooperation projects is the launch of the production of cars, building materials, textile products and yarn, electrical goods and electronic meters.
The parties are interested in the implementation of large infrastructure projects in the energy and extractive industries, including the coal industry, with the participation of enterprises and investors from the two countries.
To organize this work on a systemic basis, the Uzbekistan – Kyrgyzstan Development Fund will be expanded, a comprehensive program of strategic trade and economic partnership for 2023-2025 and an Agreement on the development of priority areas of the industry will be adopted.
As part of ensuring food security, the parties agreed to jointly grow and supply agricultural products, taking into account the needs of the two countries.
Another strategic direction is the development of transport communications.
“The success of our efforts largely depends on the effectiveness of cooperation in transport”, the President of Uzbekistan said.
During the talks, the leaders agreed to intensify efforts to build the China – Kyrgyzstan – Uzbekistan railway. The energy sector, in particular the issues of joint construction of the Kambarata HPP-1, also became a subject of detailed discussion.
“This mega-project will undoubtedly serve the sustainable development of not only Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, but also our entire region”, the President of Uzbekistan emphasized.
The main attention at the talks was paid to the intensification of interregional ties. Regular meetings of the Council of Heads of Border Regions will serve to deepen them.
“We have no analogue of such a unique platform with any other country”, Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
Special attention was paid to strengthening interaction in the cultural and humanitarian spheres.
It was noted that the Uzbek Music and Drama Theater named after Babur, the reconstruction of which is being completed in the city of Osh, will become a bright symbol of friendship between the people of the two countries.
