Uzbek Military Receives NATO Training

Young recruits from Uzbekistan’s armed forces have been gaining new skills with military professionals from NATO.

Senior staff from NATO recently visited Uzbekistan’s military training center, affiliated to the country’s Ministry of Defense. Uzbek cadets were given classes on a number of subjects, including on how non-commissioned officers are trained in NATO member states.

Uzbekistan’s army ranked 65th out of 145 countries in the most recent PowerIndex rating. The country’s defense sector conducts international exercises on a regular basis; last October Uzbek servicemen won an army competition in South Korea, while this year the training range in the city of Termez will host joint exercises with the Indian military.

Uzbekistan cooperates with NATO under the Partnership for Peace program.
