I can say with confidence that these intentions today bring positive results in various areas.
At present, Uzbekistan has chosen its own path of development, it is recognized by the international community as a peaceful and reliable partner.
Being in old age, I would like to emphasize measures undertaken in the republic under the State program \"Year of attention and care for the older generation\" to further enhance the level and quality of life of older persons, providing material and moral support, improvement of social, pension and health care. In this context, it should be recognized that attention and care to senior generation has historically characterized Uzbek people.
