Putin's visit to Uzbekistan is officially announced



At the invitation of Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit Tashkent for a state visit on May 26-27, as reported by the President’s press service.

The visit's agenda includes high-level negotiations focused on advancing and deepening the comprehensive strategic partnership and alliance between Uzbekistan and Russia.

"Special emphasis will be placed on enhancing practical cooperation, particularly in increasing mutual trade, promoting economic cooperation projects, supporting innovative programs, and continuing cultural and humanitarian exchanges," the statement reads.

A series of bilateral agreements are expected to be signed following the summit. Additionally, both leaders will participate in the inaugural meeting of the Uzbekistan-Russia Regional Council.

"Leading up to the visit, several joint events are taking place in Tashkent, including a meeting of rectors from top engineering and technical universities, a medical scientific conference, and a week dedicated to Russian art," the report states.
