Chinese President Hu Jintao's upcoming visit to Uzbekistan will help chart the future direction of the bilateral ties and add momentum to the development of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), said Chinese Ambassador to Uzbekistan Yu Hongjun.

In a recent interview with Xinhua, the ambassador said the visit will also help promote peace, stability and development in the region.

At the invitation of Uzbek President Islam Karimov, President Hu will pay a state visit to Uzbekistan and attend the annual SCO summit in Tashkent , Uzbek capital between June 9 and 11. The Chinese and Uzbek presidents are expected to discuss bilateral ties, the SCO's development as well as key international and regional issues.

Yu noted that since China and Uzbekistan established diplomatic ties, leaders of the two countries have had frequent exchanges of visits and maintained close contact on the development of the bilateral ties as well as regional and international issues. Sino-Uzbek relations have entered a new phase since leaders from both sides signed a treaty for friendly and cooperative partnership in 2005.

The ambassador said China appreciated the condolences Karimov sent to the victims of China's Wenchuan earthquake in 2008, as well as the 50 tons of aid supplies provided by his government to the quake zone.
