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.

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.
