MOSCOW, August 29. /TASS/. The Kremlin expresses deep regrets over reports that Uzbekistan’s President Islam Karimov is ill and wishes him a speedy recovery.
"Certainly, we deeply regret the disease of Uzbekistan’s president and of course, Moscow wishes him a speedy recovery," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"We appreciate our relations with Uzbekistan in line with the plans set following the recent contacts of the presidents of our countries," he added. Moscow and Tashkent "have rather many tasks on the agenda concerning the development of bilateral relations."
"That’s why indeed we would like in this case to receive only positive news about the health of the president (of Uzbekistan)," Peskov said, adding that the Kremlin has no other information about Karimov’s condition.
Earlier in the day, Karimov’s daughter Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva wrote on her Instagram page that the 78-year-old president suffered a brain hemorrhage on Saturday and is in an intensive care in a stable condition.
"At the moment it is too early to make any predictions about his future health," he wrote.
Uzbekistan’s mass media reports said earlier that Karimov had been hospitalized giving no details about the diagnosis. Karimov has been the president of Uzbekistan since 1991.
