Uzbekistan calls for an end to aggression in Ukraine

Source: eurasianet.org

Uzbekistan has broken ranks among its Central Asian peers, who have pointedly refrained from adopting explicit positions on Russia’s war, by stating that it recognizes Ukraine’s territorial integrity and that it will not recognize the independence of the breakaway self-styled republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.

Speaking in the Senate on March 17, Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Komilov urged both sides in the conflict to reach a diplomatic solution.

“The situation around Ukraine is a cause of deep concern for Uzbekistan,” Komilov said. “We support pursuing a peaceful solution for this situation and to settle this conflict by political and diplomatic means. For that to happen, it is necessary first to bring an end to the military activities and aggression.”

The statement stops short of categorically assigning blame to either side for initiating the conflict, but the fact that it has been made at all is notable in light of the depth of diplomatic and economic ties between Uzbekistan and Russia.

All other countries in Central Asia, whose economies are like Uzbekistan’s strongly dependent on that of Russia, have adopted fiercely noncommittal positions.

5. Oh, hell, Uzbekistan has just twigged to the fact that they're on the list, too

This is obviously a war for turf once held by Russia and that's their turf, too.

2. I dated a girl from Uzbekistan

She spoke three languages. Her native language, English, and the Russian that everyone had to learn under the occupation.

7. I enjoyed being in Uzbekistan, my hotel in Tashkent was built by Catherine The Great

However Air Uzbekistan was another story, one of the scariest things I have done and that includes motorcycle racing at Daytona Speedway in the rain. Flying 40+ year old Aeroflot castoff's with bald tires and no seat belts and I think a drunk pilot. (the intra country flight, the 7 hr flight from Frankfurt was on a newer Airbus and was OK except for the blaring Russian MTV with god awful music the whole way...like SNL skit of Russian pop music.)
