Premier Li Keqiang met with Uzbek President Islam Karimov on Sept 3, who was in Beijing for China’s V-Day celebrations.
China is willing to strengthen communication with Uzbekistan to expand bilateral trade, innovate the way the two countries cooperate and create more practical achievements from their mutual trust, said Premier Li.
He also said that cooperation on production capacity and infrastructure construction between Uzbekistan and China is complementary and looks to be promising. China is willing to carry out production capacity and equipment manufacturing industry cooperation in the fields that are of interest to both sides, cultivating new growth points and helping both sides to effectively respond to downward pressure amid the changing international economic situation.
Karimov noted that China plays a unique and constructive role in international affairs. Uzbekistan and China enjoy a high-level political mutual trust and a mutually beneficial economic relationship, and people of both countries enjoy a profound friendship. Uzbekistan would like to expand cooperation with China and promote a continuing development of bilateral relations.
