Iran, Uzbekistan favor stronger ties

Tehran, May 6, IRNA – Iranian and Uzbek presidents in a phone conversation late on Wednesday hailed bilateral relations as growing and stressed the need for further interactions between the two countries in line with promoting mutual ties.

President Hassan Rouhani and his Uzbek counterpart Shavkat Mirziyoyev mutually congratulated advent of Ramadan, hoping that all nations would be able to overcome the problems with each other's help.

Referring to the difficulties caused by coronavirus outbreak, they stressed the need for promoting collaboration and sympathy among the governments and countries to combat coronavirus.

Both sides also called for restoring trade and economic relations to the previous level while observing health guidelines.

Rouhani recalled Iran's achievements in producing testing kits and other medical equipment needed for fighting coronavirus, saying that Iran is ready for meeting Uzbekistan's needs in the field.
