The message reads, in part:
“Your country has achieved widely recognised success in the economic and social spheres. Uzbekistan rightly enjoys great authority on the global arena, playing an important role in addressing topical issues on the international agenda.
Relations between our states are developing dynamically in the spirit of strategic partnership and alliance. I am confident that, through our joint efforts, we will further expand the entire scope of mutually beneficial bilateral ties. Without question, this would serve the interests of the friendly nations of Russia and Uzbekistan and be aligned with strengthening stability and security in Central Asia.”
