The President of Uzbekistan praised the excellent organisation of the FIFA World Cup.
The leaders discussed key issues of bilateral cooperation in the context of preparations for Vladimir Putin’s state visit to Uzbekistan scheduled for the autumn of 2018.
They also touched on several topical issues on the international and regional agendas.
Earlier in the day, Vladimir Putin sent Shavkat Mirziyoyev a message of greeting, which reads, in part:
“Under your leadership, Uzbekistan is confidently moving along the path of sustainable socio-economic development and is playing an important and constructive role in regional and international affairs. Mostly thanks to your personal efforts, we have recently succeeded in developing strategic cooperation and alliance between our countries.
I will be glad to continue our friendly dialogue and close joint work with you. I hope that our upcoming talks in Tashkent will further develop mutually beneficial bilateral cooperation in various areas for the benefit of our fraternal peoples.”
