THE PRESIDENTS EXPRESS SATISFACTION WITH NEGOTIATIONS
As a conclusion to the talks, the Presidents of Uzbekistan and Germany attended a ceremony of signing bilateral documents.
The agreements penned included those on the exchange and protection of information, cooperation in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to climate change, launch of the production of commercial vehicles in cooperation with Volkswagen, among others. President Shavkat Mirziyoyev noted that these documents, especially the agreement between the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan and the German companies Integra GmbH and Vamed Engineering GmbH on the establishment of the Center for Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Therapy in Tashkent, are quite important for our people.
At a briefing for representatives of mass media, the two sides informed that the negotiations were held in a traditionally friendly and open atmosphere, in the spirit of mutual understanding, and that they resulted in important agreements.
“I am quite satisfied with the outcomes of today’s talks, itself a logical continuation of our meeting that took place in Berlin earlier in January,” Shavkat Mirziyoyev said. “We have thoroughly revisited almost every area of bilateral cooperation, including political dialogue, inter-parliamentary relations, trade and economic, investment, cultural and humanitarian interaction and much more. We’ve discussed the current state of the Uzbek-German relations and identified priorities and objectives for the future.”
“We have been observing the political, economic, and social growth in Uzbekistan with great sympathy and respect. Our current visit as a large delegation is indicative of our desire to enhance cooperation. We are pleased with the results of the negotiations, during which we’ve discussed a wide range of issues regarding bilateral relations and cooperation through the European Union,” Frank-Walter Steinmeier suggested.
The head of our state expressed gratitude to the organizations and representatives of Germany, who have been contributing to the promotion of socio-economic, scientific and cultural ties between our two nations.
The official visit of the Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier to our country continues.
