MOSCOW, September 1 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has congratulated his Uzbek counterpart Islam Karimov upon the Central Asian republic’s Independence Day, the Kremlin press service said on Thursday.
“For 20 years of its independence the country has passed a long way in the economic, social and political life as well as in education, science and culture,” the Russian leader said in his message placed on the Kremlin website.
“The Russian-Uzbekistani relations of friendship and cooperation have been expanding. Regular political contacts, a trust-based dialogue at the highest level and a shared vision of global processes allow us to constructively address important issues on a mutually beneficial basis,” the message read.
“I am confident that close cooperation between our states, both bilaterally and through regional and international organizations, will be further strengthened in the interests of our nations, peace and stability in the Central Asian region.”
