I am pleased to note that since Uzbekistan gained its independence, Uzbek-British relations started actively developing in the spirit of strategic partnership.  I believe by joint efforts we will continue to build up multifaceted bilateral ties for the benefit of our people. 

On this significant day, please accept my sincere and warm wishes.  May there always be peace and prosperity in your families! Happy Independence Day!” - Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Uzbekistan, Tim Torlot said.
