In Brussels, NATO Special Representative for Central Asia and the Caucasus Javier Kolomina discussed with the Ambassador of Uzbekistan Dilyor Khakimov further cooperation between Tashkent and the Alliance. The parties came to a common position and announced the further deepening of military and technical partnership.
At the same time, the defense ministers of Uzbekistan and Russia have previously signed a mutual assistance program until 2025, which includes training the Uzbek army and supplying the necessary types of weapons for Tashkent.
It is worth noting that the United States has stepped up diplomatic ties with Central Asian countries after the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. Washington expects to find a state that will create a new military base for operations against the Afghan authorities. So far, no one in the region has agreed to open US military installations.
