At the outset of the conversation, the President of Belarus sincerely congratulated the President of Uzbekistan on successfully holding the referendum on introducing amendments to the Constitution of the Republic of Uzbekistan, which took place on April 30 this year.
The Presidents satisfactorily noted the consistent development of cooperation between Uzbekistan and Belarus.
Bilateral events are being held within the framework of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. The trade turnover and the number of joint ventures are growing.
