MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. Uzbekistan’s President Shavkat Mirziyoyev has arrived in Moscow on his first state visit in this capacity. Mirziyoyev’s plane landed in Moscow’s Vnukovo airport on Tuesday evening.
On April 5, the Uzbek president will meet with Russian top officials, President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. The agenda of the talks with Medvedev will include cooperation in the energy, industry and agriculture sectors, joint investments and infrastructure projects.
Talks with President Putin will focus on "key aspects of bilateral relations," the Kremlin press service said. Apart from that, the two leaders will "outline steps towards further development of mutually beneficial cooperation in the political, trade-and-economic, cultural-and-humanitarian and research spheres."
