Uzbekistan wants to open an embassy in Dhaka


Uzbekistan has agreed to open an embassy in Dhaka alongside the launch of flights on the Dhaka-Tashkent route.

The decisions were taken during a courtesy meeting between Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen and Uzbek Deputy Prime Minister Jamshid Khodzaev on Friday July 29, a press release said.

The Foreign Minister assured the Deputy Prime Minister of Uzbekistan that the government would provide all necessary assistance to open the Embassy of Uzbekistan in Dhaka.

Dr. Momen emphasized communication between the two countries and insisted on the resumption of commercial flights between the two countries as before.

The two sides discussed the code-sharing method for operating flights between the two countries.

The two sides agreed to launch Dhaka-Tashkent direct flights in view of consumer demand.

The Uzbek Deputy Prime Minister expressed his optimism that if direct communication is established between the ports of Chittagong in Bangladesh and Chabahar in Iran to increase trade between Bangladesh and Uzbekistan, the cost of transporting goods will be reduced.

Dr. Momen expressed his interest in importing cotton from Uzbekistan while the Uzbek Deputy Prime Minister said that Bangladesh can import cotton from Uzbekistan and export it to other countries in the world thanks to the added value.

The foreign minister also expressed interest in importing fertilizer from Uzbekistan.

He called for steps to be taken to make it easy for Bangladeshi citizens to obtain visas.

Khodzaev said an electronic visa system is being introduced for Bangladeshi citizens, through which they can visit Uzbekistan for travel or business purposes.
