Uzbekistan’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Bakhromjon Aloyev, recently convened with Ilkhan Kyuchyuk, the European Parliament’s rapporteur on Uzbekistan. The meeting served as a platform to discuss the current state of affairs and prospects of the Uzbekistan-EU relationship, with a particular focus on the European Parliament’s report on Uzbekistan, dated October 4, 2023.
The dialogue underscored the importance of regular and productive interactions between parliamentarians as a crucial component of the Uzbekistan-EU relationship. Proposals were considered to bolster the inter-parliamentary dialogue, including mutual visits of deputies and an exchange of expertise in legislative processes.
The meeting also provided an opportunity for the parties to deliberate on specific issues related to international and regional challenges. This interaction is part of a broader trend of strengthening ties between Uzbekistan and the EU, as evidenced by the active development of inter-parliamentary ties and the hosting of two representative delegations of prominent members of the European Parliament in Uzbekistan in 2023 alone.
This meeting marks another milestone in the evolving partnership between Uzbekistan and the EU, reflecting their shared commitment to addressing regional challenges and fostering mutual growth.
