Meeting with Special Envoy of the European Union for Afghanistan

On June 12, 2018, the Special Representative of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan for Afghanistan Ismatulla Irgashev met with the European Union Special Envoy for Afghanistan Roland Kobia, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

At the meeting, views were exchanged on the situation in Afghanistan and the surrounding region.

The sides noted that the region received with optimism the reports that the central authorities of Afghanistan and the Taliban agreed for the first time since 2001 to introduce a three-day ceasefire and armistice regime for the period of Eid al-Fitr/Uraza-Bayram holiday, which could lead to positive changes in the peace process in the country.

The interlocutors discussed issues of cooperation within the framework of implementation of the Tashkent Declaration, adopted on March 27 at the representative international conference on Afghanistan “Peace process, security cooperation and regional connectivity.”
