Uzbekistan Renders Humanitarian Aid to Kyrgyzstan - Report
On the initiative of President Islam Karimov the Government of Uzbekistan rendered a gratuitous humanitarian aid to the Kyrgyz Republic, according to the report by the Uzbekistan National News Agency.
On April 24 this year from the railway station “Savay” of the Kurghantepa District of the Andijan Province the Government of Uzbekistan sent the humanitarian aid to the neighboring country.
According to the report, the humanitarian aid included 30 tons of flour, 200 tons of mineral fertilizers, 150 tons of cement, construction materials, clothing, medicinal treatment tools, medicinal inventory, and many other stuff.
Such humanitarian gesture on the part of the Government has been frankly supported by the Uzbek people, the report indicated.
“Our ancestors lived side by side, engaged in land farming on the adjacent territories of land,” the chairman of the Kurghantepa District Department of Nuroniy Foundation Mamasoli Siddikov said. “Therefore, rendering humanitarian aid to Kyrgyzstan is quite natural and we support it.”
Also, the humanitarian aid to Kyrgyzstan speaks about the solid friendship of the two people.
“From the ancient times our peoples have been linked with friendly relations,” Deputy Minister for Emergency Situations of the Kyrgyz Republic Muhammed Kasymaliev said. “Uzbekistan was one of the first to have offered a hand of help to Kyrgyzstan. We are profoundly grateful to the President and Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan for that.”
