25 years of British-Uzbek relations and inauguration of new All-Party Parliamentary Group for Uzbekistan

 
 

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Uzbekistan and the United Kingdom. In light of the anniversary celebrations, Embassy hosted special event devoted to the state of the bilateral relations over the past 25 years, and the embassy’s achievements and work in Great Britain .

It was emphasized the importance of cooperation between Uzbekistan and Great Britain in the fields of defense, education and trade and investment, and highlighted positive outcomes such as the work of the Uzbek-British Trade and Industry Council, whose previous annual meeting, held in Tashkent in November, brought together representatives of the Government of Uzbekistan and record numbers of British companies to help further develop trade and investment relations between the two countries.

Yet although official bilateral relations were established only 25 years ago, contact between the two countries goes back over six hundred years. In 1402 the great Amir Temur and his son Miranshah wrote letters to King Henry IV of England offering to establish friendship relations between the nations and develop trade affairs. Thus, Amir Temur had sent Christian Archbishop John from Sultaniya (modern Iran) as his envoy to English and French courts. After a while, Henry IV sent his reply messages and expressed readiness for cooperation with the Empire of Temurids. This correspondence, which still exists today, is one of the first facts of official diplomatic communications between the two nations, though it is known that trade relations between the them were developed much earlier - owing to the Great Silk Road.
