It was noted that the visit of the delegation was carried out to develop organizational measures for the repatriation of citizens – women and children mainly – to Uzbekistan.

“The repatriation of our citizens is a direct responsibility of the Government of Uzbekistan. The implementation of measures to this end will be based solely on humanitarian principles,” the report says.

Last year, Uzbekistan conducted “Mehr-1” and “Mehr-2” humanitarian operations to repatriate 220 women and children from conflict zones in the Middle East.
