Uzbekistan supports resolving conflicts solely through peaceful means and all available diplomatic channels.

In this regard, international efforts to peacefully resolve the crisis are of paramount importance. We applaud the actions of all countries, including the US initiative for ceasefire, release of captives, and restoration of peaceful life,” said the ministry representative.
