Iran, Uzbekistan stress stepped-up relations

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani has held meetings with different Uzbek high-ranking officials on a Tashkent visit during which the two sides stressed stepped-up relations.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri, who has traveled to Tashkent to take part in the seventh round of political talks between Iran and Uzbekistan, met with the Deputy Speaker of the Legislative Chamber of Uzbekistan and Chairman of the Iran-Uzbekistan Friendship Group, Alisher Kadyrov, the webiste of the Iranian foreign ministry reported.

Highlighting the historical and cultural commonalities between the two countries, Kadyrov said the presidents of Iran and Uzbekistan are determined to promote  bilateral ties.

He added that the influential role of the two countries’ parliaments in consolidating and expediting their relations is ‘undeniable.’

He said the reciprocal trips by the Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf and his Uzbek counterpart Nuriddinjon Ismailov to Tashkent and Tehran were an objective manifestation of the interests by the two popular institutions.

Meanwhile, Bagheri said, “The depth of the long-standing relations between the two countries was formed in a popular context and for this reason it cannot be broken.”

“Iran and Uzbekistan are two largest countries in the region, and correspondingly, they have an important task in establishing regional peace and stability and amid all this the parliaments play a central role and can improve ties between the people and organize the mechanism of relations,” he added.

The Iranian deputy foreign minister for political affairs welcomed the interaction between the two parliaments besides the speakers at various levels, including fractions, parliamentary friendship groups and committees, saying it can stabilize the cordial ties.

Iran deputy PM meets directors of Tashkent University of Oriental Studies in Uzbekistan

Ali Bagheri, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs, who is in Uzbekistan to conduct the seventh round of political consultations, engaged in a brief meeting with the directors of Tashkent University of Oriental Studies, toured the Iran Room within the university, and conversed with its directors, professors, and students, to give a speech.

Bagheri expressed that Iran's accomplishments across various domains over the last 45 years since the Islamic Revolution, despite facing US sanctions, serve as a testament to the strength, expertise, and dedication of Iranian youth.

Providing examples of Iran's progress despite pressures and sanctions over the past four decades, Bagheri emphasized that the key to the Iranian youth's success in transforming the "threat of sanctions" into an "opportunity for progress" lies in their inherent "self-confidence."

Bagheri further remarked: "Despite the fact that effective interaction with different countries is the central strategy of Iran's foreign policy and does not conflict with the earnest endeavors to safeguard the borders of independence, ensuring the stability of progress relies on both not trusting the enemies and not relying on foreigners."

Bagheri asserted: "Given the shared cultural and civilizational ties and the presence of talented young people, Iran and Uzbekistan can forge a roadmap for interaction across various fields."
