Is Uzbekistan interested in buying American weapons?

74
The authorities of Uzbekistan are interested in military-technical cooperation and cooperation in defense with the United States, reports TASS a message published on the official website of the Uzbek leader.




This message appeared on the site after the meeting of the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev with US Secretary of Defense James Mattis in Washington.

Uzbekistan is interested in sharing experience, military-technical cooperation, cooperation in the fields of defense and security with the United States of America,
quoted by Mirziyoyev press service.

It is reported that "the parties addressed issues of strengthening cooperation in the fields of defense and security."

Mattis, in turn, "expressed satisfaction with the visit of Mirziyoyev and noted that Uzbekistan is an important geostrategic state in the region," the release said.

Following the meeting between the Uzbek leader and Donald Trump, the White House earlier said that the visit of Mirziyoyev "marked the beginning of a new era of strategic partnership between the United States and Uzbekistan."

Before negotiations with a colleague from Uzbekistan, Trump reported that the countries are negotiating the purchase of American military equipment by Tashkent.

    The Uzbeks decided to flirt with the Americans? This is not good. Now a new base will appear at the Tashkent airport?

        Uzbekistan is not a country that can conclude a really interesting arms purchase contract with the American military-industrial complex. Uzbekistan does not have much money. And the US Foreign Ministry,
        Uzbekistan as a geopolitical chip in the game against Russia and China is just interesting. You should wait for the next "color" revolution, though if you still have time to prepare,
        and then the remains of ISIS have nowhere to put their forces

          Under this case, mattresses can Uzbekistan a little money and ship in the form of a loan to buy weapons. And the Uzbeks will be on a double hook - dependence on supplies of b / p and components and debt bondage. Mattresses acquire a market and dependent vassals. And why you do it, you described absolutely correctly - the game against Russia and China.

        Uh no. This is much worse. The Americans are stubbornly rolling out Central Asia and the Caucasus. The day before yesterday - Kazakhstan, yesterday - Armenia, today - Uzbekistan. Who is next? But this is a zone of our strategic interests, our soft underbelly. And we do not give it to the mortal enemy for a snuff of tobacco.

            And not only with them. Near Afghanistan, where over the years of the ATO, US forces have increased the production of drugs at times. The question is, where do they go from the territory of Afghanistan? Where do drug trafficking routes go and is everything in order with the sources of income of "some leading figures"? Controlling the dollar, Americans control a lot

    The trend will only intensify, since the countries of the former USSR do not see the center of gravity in the Russian Federation either economically or militarily. And therefore, sooner or later, in front of all the small states, the whole question arises of who is more profitable to be friends with and who can be acquired more. Nobody wants such protection as in Syria or Donbass in their countries.

      The trend has not changed for more than 25 years. At one time he served in Uzbekistan at the beginning of the 90's. We agreed with the United States on the supply of M-16. Introduced changes in the charters. They held Kalash in the American manner. They said that the M-16 was about to be brought up. Not fused. Rifles of the Uzbek climate (sand) could not stand and rearmament did not take place. And so in many areas of armament and military equipment. Although the Americans helped with the Taliban, of course, nobody argues.
      In general, geopolitics and economics in action, in conjunction with common sense.

Where did the Taliban come from in the territory of the Republic of Uzbekistan and how did the Americans help them fight. And also tell why American sanctions hung in Uzbekistan until 2011.

          In parts of the national guard. Accordingly, the same governing documents were brought into compliance there.
          Where did the Taliban come from in the territory of the Republic of Uzbekistan and how did the Americans help them fight.

          ???? You do not know about the hostilities in Uzbekistan and neighboring republics, the attacks of Islamists, etc.? have not heard of the Namangani gang? The topic of a separate article, you can google. And after the terrorist attacks in the USA, the war in Afghanistan began and the Taliban no longer had raids on the Central Asian republics.
          And also tell us why in Uzbekistan, before the 2011 year, American sanctions hung

          Why? And how did they influence the events that I mentioned?
          What nonsense are you writing here?

          If you don’t know something, it doesn’t mean that this is nonsense.

    Well, the surrender of territories and their country to the enemy without a fight continues, under the slurred mumbles of mythical non-interference and sovereignty, it is a pity only, the overseas "partners" do not know about it. What kind of EurAsEC, what kind of CSTO is it that only Russians seem to be in these unions and treaties, and the rest know exactly about it, or at least hear it? Judging by how we fight and feed Syria alone, we fight in the UN Security Council, no one knows about these alliances and treaties, and our authorities do not insist. This once again confirms the level of our so-called. elites, professionalism and the will of officials, their helplessness and shortsightedness, measuring everything and everyone for money. Ask *** whether everything and everything, everything that was collected and protected by blood and sweat from our ancestors for millennia. All these losses, betrayals and killings by the elites of their country, for the sake of their petty bourgeois ambitions of greed and degradation, show the level of previous rulers and leaders of the state and the current misunderstanding, the will of fate was at the trough. And the difference is that before this trough was cherished and cherished, framed in gold and fertilized so that it grows and blooms, it is proud and loved, drove off other people's mouths and beat on raking hands, now they threw it on a common table in a tavern without supervision and guardianship, and even where the godfather is in charge from someone else's farmyard. How it was possible to leave their territories and people without strict guardianship and control, how it could be assumed that the “partner” from the ocean, without a fight and resistance, became the owner on these lands, abundantly watered with the blood of Russian soldiers. At all times, in my opinion, it is somehow called differently, but this is the competence of other bodies. It’s a disgrace, doubly disgraceful, that a generation did this, whose fathers and even brothers who fought to death on these lands, the graves of many there, with such a wretched and impoverished spirit, having such elites, such a country and power are not needed and not laid, their inheritance forever the owner.

    There are no Uzbek migrant workers in the Russian Federation. In Uzbekistan, a pretty decent standard of living with a free communal.

    Well you are a storyteller, however. The day before yesterday I went into Megafon’s office to pay for the phone and the Internet, so the Uzbek “non-guest workers” stood in line in front of me. They needed a tariff to talk to Tashkent. In addition to the passport (Uzbek), they asked if temporary registration should be submitted. Of course, these are not Uzbek guest workers, but tourists ... laughing
    As for the high standard of living, my father’s brother complained that they had to leave for Russia, since their pensions were lower ....

    I wonder what kind of cookie did trump Mirziyoyev lure? He promised the mountain of Turkish delight and the river of sorbet?

    These cookies are called indifference towards Russia with the former Union republics. Instead of doing everything so that they become your allies, they simply beat them, they say, cook yourself in your own juice, since you are already "independent". But these republics do not see in Russia that center of attraction that was in the USSR. And now we ask the question - what kind of cookies are these?

    C'mon, you don’t worry! Trump is still that balabol about the supply of amerikus military equipment. Relations with the United States will develop, if only because we have their embassy. Our President did not say anything like this, just general phrases adopted at such meetings. Everyone says like that. There, at a meeting, Comrade C and Trump also talked a lot to each other, but in fact we have a trade war. We still remember very well when, after the Andijan events in May 2005, the Amerza, together with their Euro-mongers, yelled about the violation of human rights and the disproportionate use of force in dispersing an anti-government rally and imposed sanctions against us. We did not forget this, and as they say, made ourselves "note-notches." After that, the Amerzes immediately lost the Karshi-Khanabad base and all their NGO-NGOs flew out a kick from our territory, including USAID, within a month. By the way, so far they all have not returned back ...

    Then in parallel there was news that a group of igil penetrated into Uzbekistan - I’m sure that it was not casual. Soon, it means it’s going to burn. After the collapse of the USSR (and in many ways even before), wherever the Americans would enter, it immediately began to blaze. Well, Russia does not have a common border with this country, but the Kazakhs have to learn better by feeling in their own skin the consequences of flirting with the current hegemon.

      What is the habit of writing completely incompetent opinion in the comments? You write this in relation to a country that has been under American sanctions for more than 5 years, to a country that has driven American troops from its territory. What kind of absolute illiteracy in relation to the countries of the former USSR, there is not the slightest idea about the situation in the region, but to comment on a sacred thing, right?

      Here, in parallel, the news passed that a group of igil penetrated into Uzbekistan


      Yeah? "Penetrated" say? Did you yourself, or did someone write it - lay on the border with binoculars, watched how these frames “penetrate” us? *)))) Hmm ... really ...
