Uzbekistan delegation led by the First Deputy Speaker of the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis Akmal Saidov has met with the Vice-President of the European Parliament Heidi Hautala, reports “Dunyo” IA correspondent.
The parties discussed the current issues of bilateral inter-parliamentary cooperation in the areas of mutual interest.
The importance of enhancing interaction through the intensification of political dialogue, the development of inter-parliamentary contacts, the acceleration of the negotiation process on the Enhanced Partnership and Cooperation Agreement between Uzbekistan and the European Union, as well as the expansion of interregional ties were noted.
Vice-President of the European Parliament noted that Europe and Central Asia are going through a difficult period due to the situation in Afghanistan, the growing threat of international religious fanaticism and terrorism, as well as financial instability. Against this background, Uzbekistan is one of the few countries that can demonstrate its resilience to these challenges.
According to Heidi Hautala, the European Union is interested in building up trade and economic ties, intensifying cooperation in the fight against such threats as climate change, as well as expanding human contacts.
The European side was informed about the large-scale transformations being carried out in the country, the reforms carried out in Uzbekistan in the areas of justice, internal affairs, human rights and the rule of law.
Information was provided on the main provisions of the New Uzbekistan Development Strategy for 2022-2026.
At the meeting, views were also exchanged on the schedule of the upcoming contacts at various levels and formats.
