Delegation of Kuwait visits Legislative Chamber
A delegation led by chairperson of the inter-parliamentary group of friendship of National Assembly of Kuwait Saud Nashmi Al-Heriji held a meeting with the Deputy Speaker of the Legislative Chamber of Oliy Majlis of Uzbekistan Sarvar Otamuratov on 27 April 2015.
At the meeting, the sides underlined that the relations between two states are developing gradually.

Several bilateral agreements directed at strengthening relations between two states and boosting trade-economic and investment cooperation were signed within the visit.
The parliamentary relations also play key role in developing political dialogue. So far, five parliamentary delegations from Kuwait visited Uzbekistan. The delegations held talks with the leadership of Oliy Majlis of Uzbekistan to discuss development of inter-parliamentary relations and exchange of the delegations to strengthen cooperation between parliaments of two nations. Kuwaiti delegations also participated in the parliamentary and presidential elections in Uzbekistan.
At the meeting, the Kuwaiti delegation familiarized with the activities of Oliy Majlis of Uzbekistan, including reforms in Uzbekistan, formation of civil society and strengthening of control functions of the parliament in Uzbekistan.
Saud Nashmi Al-Heriji said Kuwait is interested in further developing cooperation with Uzbekistan. He noted that strong legislative framework in Uzbekistan strengthened authorities of the parliament. He added that there are potential for further development of inter-parliamentary cooperation between two states.
