    Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, China set to mull development of road transport


    Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and China will hold a tripartite meeting on the implementation of the agreement on the international road transport, the Uzbek Foreign Ministry reported.

    The meeting will be held in Tashkent on January 24-25. Before the trilateral meeting, there will be held bilateral Uzbek-Kyrgyz and Uzbek-Chinese meetings on international road transport issues.

    Delegations of the Ministry of Transport of the People's Republic of China, the Ministry of Transport and Roads of the Kyrgyz Republic and the Uzbek Agency for Automobile and River Transport will participate in the meeting.

    The agreement between the governments of Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and China on international road transport was signed on February 19, 1998.

    Currently, transportation between Uzbekistan and China is carried out mainly by rail through Kazakh-Chinese checkpoints, which entails significant costs and time lost.
