  China and Uzbekistan in recent years have seen robust growth in their bilateral friendly partnership for cooperation and smooth development in inter-military cooperation, Chen said.

  The international community is currently undergoing the most complex and profound changes since the end of the Cold War, Chen said, adding that the Central Asian countries are facing a number of new challenges and threats.

  He said it is significant for China and Uzbekistan to strengthen their coordination and cooperation, and to protect the fundamental interests of the two peoples and countries under such circumstances.

  Makhmudov said China has been one of Uzbekistan's most important strategic partners, and Uzbekistan speaks highly of the development of bilateral ties.

  He said Uzbekistan is willing to expand cooperation with China in various fields, including the military.

  Uzbekistan will continue to adhere to the one-China policy on issues concerning Taiwan, Xinjiang and Tibet, Makhmudov said.

  He added that Uzbekistan would like to deepen pragmatic cooperation between the two armed forces and contribute to the development of bilateral relations and regional stability.
