Uzbekistan and UN CTO ink road map for 2024-2025 cooperation


Uzbekistan and the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Office (UN CTO) have solidified their commitment through the signing of a comprehensive Road Map for cooperation spanning 2024-2025.

The agreement was sealed during a high-level meeting between Uzbekistan's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bakhtiyor Saidov and His Excellency Vladimir Voronkov, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Counter-Terrorism on May 14. 

The meeting, which served as a platform for strategic dialogue, witnessed discussions revolving around a spectrum of issues ranging from current global dynamics to the effective strategies required to address both present and future threats not only within the Central Asian region but also on a global scale. Central to these deliberations was the review of successful outcomes stemming from the inaugural Central Asia Regional Expert Council Meeting on the Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Returnees: Cooperation for Peace and Security. 

The Road Map signed between Uzbekistan and the UN CTO delineates a roadmap for cooperative endeavors aimed at mitigating the scourge of terrorism through a multi-faceted approach encompassing prevention, intervention, and capacity-building measures.
