Uzbekistan to close its diplomatic office in Athens

Uzbekistan is closing its diplomatic office in Athens, Greece, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Yusuf Kabuljanov said at a briefing.

“The government of Uzbekistan has decided to close its Consulate General in Athens and establish an embassy in the Kingdom of Sweden,” Kabuljanov said.

According to him, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed a relevant resolution in April this year.

“In order to maintain permanent political, diplomatic and trade-economic ties with Greece, the Embassy of Uzbekistan in Italy will oversee the issues of cooperation with this country,” the official representative of the Foreign Ministry concluded.

It should be reminded that the topic of opening an embassy in Sweden was discussed at the meeting of the President of Uzbekistan with the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde.
