Uzbekistan Seeks Expansion of NATO Relationship

by Nathan Hamm on 9/22/2004

Uzbekistan is negotiating an individual Partnership for Peace plan in Brussels.

It was said during the consultations that the draft plan, which was drawn up by the Uzbek government, outlines a wide range of reforms Uzbekistan plans to carry out in various areas.

Uzbekistan is the first Central Asian country to announce its readiness to expand its partnership with NATO as part of the Individual Partnership Action Plan, the press service said.

“Uzbekistan shares the view of the alliance’s member-nations that the Individual Partnership Action Plan mechanism provides a sound foundation for further cooperation that will take Uzbekistan’s specific needs in the most vital areas of cooperation into consideration,” the press service said.
