The two presidents discussed current bilateral cooperation issues in the context of implementing the decisions resulting from Mr Mirziyoyev’s state visit to Russia (on April 4–5, 2017).
Earlier, Mr Putin sent Mr Mirziyoyev a message of greetings.
The telegram reads, in part:
“You deservedly enjoy great authority at home and abroad as an experienced and far-sighted statesman who has made a great personal contribution to resolving the tasks facing Uzbekistan.
Russia values highly your principled policy of developing the strategic partnership and alliance between our countries. I hope to continue our substantive dialogue with you and continue our fruitful work together to further develop all areas of our mutually advantageous relations for the benefit of our fraternal peoples and in the interests of ensuring regional stability and security”.
