TASHKENT, June 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in Uzbekistan on an official visit on Monday, June 4.
At the airport, he was greeted by Uzbekistani President Islam Karimov even though the protocol of the official visit does not require the leader of the receiving country to come to the airport.
Putin’s visit will last several hours, during which he will have talks with Karimov. The two leaders will then sign a memorandum of understanding, under which Uzbekistan will have to complete the talks by the end of the year and join the free trade zone between former Soviet republics and a declaration of the deepening of strategic partnership.
“The top-level talks in Tashkent will become a logical continuation of the intensive Russian-Uzbek political dialogue that reflect commitment of the two countries’ leadership to all-round enhancement of strategic partnership and allied relations,” presidential aide Yuri Ushakov.
Upon the end of the visit, Putin will fly to China late on Monday, June 4, on a state visit and to attend a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
