Head of the information service of the defense department Bakhrom Zulfikarov reported about it.

“To the best of my knowledge, Uzbekistan has not received an offer to deploy the United States anti-terrorist forces on its territory and does not plan such steps, since this is prohibited by the Constitution and is not provided for by the defense doctrine of our country,” he said.

Previously, it was reported that the Pentagon intends to resolve the issues of deployment of counter-terrorism forces with Uzbekistan.
