ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Minister of the Republic of Uzbekistan Abdulaziz Kamilov will arrive in Pakistan on Tuesday for a two-day visit from March 9-10, 2021.
The visiting dignitary will hold consultations with the Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, covering the entire gamut of bilateral relations and exchanging views on regional and international issues.
Consistent with the leadership’s vision, Pakistan’s focus would be on building an enhanced economic partnership centered on peace, development, and connectivity.
Relations between Pakistan and Uzbekistan are based on common faith, shared history, and cultural affinities. These linkages provide a strong foundation for increased bilateral cooperation in myriad fields.
Both Countries have been closely collaborating at regional and international fora, especially at the United Nations, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the Economic Cooperation Organisation (ECO), and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).
The two Countries are also closely cooperating to enhance regional connectivity, especially by the early construction of the Trans-Afghan Railway Project between Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Uzbekistan.
The Prime Minister’s Adviser on Commerce and Investment Razzak Dawood visited Tashkent on February 1-3, 2021. During the visit, a Roadmap on the construction of the Trans-Afghan Railway Project was signed by the three Countries.
The visit of the Uzbek Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov to Pakistan will add to the momentum created by the recent high-level bilateral interactions and provide an opportunity to further strengthen and deepen the existing bilateral cooperation in all areas of common interest.
