The leader of Uzbekistan emphasized: “Despite the difficulties of the pandemic period, solidarity and close unity have become stronger. For the first time in the history of the organization, its parliamentary and youth networks were established. All these achievements were possible thanks to the great efforts and initiatives of my respected colleague, President Ilham Aliyev, and his goal-oriented activity in the interests of member states.”
