At the VI plenary session of the Senate of Oliy Majlis, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdulaziz Kamilov spoke about labor migrants, problems they face and the shortage of personnel at consular offices in foreign countries.
“There should be a comprehensive government program to help Uzbek migrants abroad,” the Foreign Minister said. “They love their country, they are ready to return today.”
Kamilov also spoke of the assistance provided by embassies to compatriots abroad, noting that there were objections to this.
“We will help our compatriots as much as we can. But we also have our problems. The consulate in Moscow has 4 employees. They should serve 1.7 million people. That is why there are objections that the consul did not respond. “We will attack the consulate, set it on fire, hang the consul,” some people said. The consular staff is trying to be there, where our citizens have a problem,” Abdulaziz Kamilov stressed.
