The State Duma ratified on Friday the treaty on allied relations between Russia and Uzbekistan
The State Duma ratified on Friday the treaty on allied relations between Russia and Uzbekistan, which was signed by the presidents of the two countries in Moscow in November 2005. The Uzbek parliament ratified it last February. The treaty says that the two countries will help each other in case of a military threat. The allied relations include Russia-Uzbekistan cooperation in the international arena, in the sphere of economy, education, culture etc. “The treaty brings Russian-Uzbek relations to a new, higher level. It permits to resolve on an equal and mutually advantageous basis a wide range of problems, connected with ensuring the security of the two countries, as well as the security and stability in the Central Asian region in general,” said Andrei Kokoshin, head of the Duma committee for the affairs of CIS and relations with compatriots. According to Kokoshin, the two countries, acting within the framework of the treaty, are actively developing cooperation in the modernization and reforming of their Armed Forces, as well as their equipment with up-to-date armaments and military hardware, in the improvement of their combat preparedness. They are creating conditions for the signing of corresponding foreign trade contracts. Kokoshin stressed that the treaty “is a comprehensive international document, which covers as well other spheres of interstate relations.” He said the two countries were going to improve the effectiveness of the mechanism of cooperation in warding off the threats coming from international terrorism, extremism, proliferation of mass destruction weapons and illegal drug trafficking.
