Together with the delegations of the OIC Member States, a delegation of the Republic of Uzbekistan took part in the meeting, the press office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan reported.
The meeting agenda focused on the Afghan problem, in particular the prevention of a recurring security vacuum in the country and emerging security threats to the neighbouring states and the world community.
The Uzbekistan delegation focused on the policy pursued by Uzbekistan towards Afghanistan and good neighbourly relations established with a new government in Afghanistan.
The meeting participants highlighted the need to provide further humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan and involve this country in the regional and world integration processes. In this regard, it was proposed that Afghanistan’s financial assets in foreign banks be unfrozen to accelerate its recovery from a humanitarian crisis and prevent a famine in this country.
