“The heads of the delegations discussed in the narrow format the
issue of Uzbekistan’s involvement in the FTZ agreement. A decision was
made to support Uzbekistan’s aspiration to join the agreement as a
result of a detailed discussion,” Lebedev said at an open part of a
meeting of CIS Prime Ministers in Yalta.
A decision was made to complete the work on Uzbekistan’s joining the agreement by the end of the year, he said.
As of today, eight countries signed the CIS FTZ agreement. Uzbekistan will become the ninth party in the FTZ Treaty.
