External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today held talks with her Uzbek counterpart Abdulaziz Kamilov on strategic bilateral issues. "The two foreign ministers exchanged views on expanding bilateral and multilateral cooperation," external affairs ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted. In July 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had visited Tashkent to discuss bilateral issues. He visited Tashkent again in June 2016 to attend the Summit Meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) during which India signed Memorandum of Obligations for obtaining the status of member state of the SCO.
