Uzbekistan to host second consultative meeting of Central Asia leaders

TASHKENT (TCA) — On 29 November 2019, the second Consultative Meeting of the Heads of Central Asian States will be held in Tashkent, the official website of the President of Uzbekistan said.

The summit’s agenda includes topics related to the enhancement of regional cooperation in the political, trade, economic, investment, transport and communications, cultural-humanitarian and other fields.

The parties are also expected to exchange views on pressing issues in international politics and regional security.
