Meeting of the Russia-Uzbekistan Joint Commission at the level of heads of government

Excerpts from the transcript:

Mikhail Mishustin: Good afternoon, Mr Aripov. Good afternoon, colleagues.

We are delighted to welcome you to Moscow at a meeting of the Russia-Uzbekistan Joint Commission at the level of heads of government. This unique format was created at the initiative of the presidents of our two countries, Vladimir Putin and Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

Our agenda includes key aspects of our bilateral cooperation and interaction. It will become an important milestone in the preparation for the upcoming state visit of the President of Uzbekistan to the Russian Federation.

Colleagues, before we start, I would like to say a few words about today, 22 June. It is the Day of Memory and Grief. On this day, exactly 80 years ago, the Great Patriotic War broke out, the most brutal and bloody conflict in world history that claimed tens of millions of lives. Today we pay tribute to those who fought as well as to the home front workers who defended the independence of our Motherland through the hardest trials that befell the generation that took up arms and protected us.

This is part of our common history. The fraternal people of Uzbekistan made a significant contribution to the victory over Nazism. Hundreds of thousands of Uzbek citizens showed extraordinary courage and heroism. Just as Russian soldiers, many of them never returned from the battlefield.

I suggest we honor the memory of all soldiers who fought valiantly at the front, and pay tribute to the people who, at the cost of their own lives, won the Great Victory.

Please join me in a minute of silence.

A minute of silence.

Thank you.
