WASHINGTON, February 5. /“Dunyo” IA/. On February 4, the popular American weekly “Newsweek” published an article by the Ambassador of Uzbekistan to the United States, Javlon Vakhabov, “The U.S. Must Remain Engaged with Central Asia”, dedicated to the regional policy of Uzbekistan and the factors that determine the need for the involvement of the Joe Biden administration in the region, reports “Dunyo” IA correspondent.

The number of followers on Twitter is 3.4 million, Facebook-1.8 million.
The article draws the attention of readers to the following main theses:
- as a result of the liberal transformations and market reforms undertaken by the leadership of the country, Uzbekistan with its growing economy, has become an epicenter (ground zero) for investors, as it offers unique business opportunities;
- the new positive relationship between the countries of Central Asia-encouraged by Uzbekistan's President Shavkat Mirziyoyev's policies-has created a new atmosphere of trust that paved the way for infrastructure development to improve regional connectivity;
- the large-scale reforms carried out in the country to liberalize the economy and the energy potential of Uzbekistan open up opportunities for greater involvement of American business in the region, satisfying the US goals of diversifying its energy supplies while ensuring regional stability;
- Uzbekistan has made consistent efforts to encourage direct political dialogue between the Taliban, the Afghan government and Afghan civil society. The U.S. must continue to engage actively with Central Asia—among others through the C5+1 platform—to achieve our shared objective of promoting long-lasting peace and stability in Afghanistan;
- our two countries share more than political, economic and security interests—we also share common values. There is ample room for the U.S. and the countries of Central Asia to expand their efforts to promote democracy and protect human rights. Like the U.S., Uzbekistan has embraced these values.
