Uzbekistan invited to become member of IAP
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- On 5 December 2018 Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Uzbekistan to Benelux countries Dilyor Khakimov held a meeting with Director General of the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) Haan Moral and IAP Executive Director Yana Holst Hübner in The Hague. It was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan.
The sides took with interest the detailed information about the large-scale reforms being implemented in the country, primarily in the judicial and law enforcement spheres, which already today have a positive impact on the lives of citizens. In fact, the principle proclaimed by the President of Uzbekistan is ensured: “not people should serve the state, but the state to people”. Especially, new priority areas of activity of the prosecution authorities were noted.
The leaders of the IAP highly appreciated the processes of social and political life renewal and economic modernization in Uzbekistan. In this context, confidence was expressed in productive nature of cooperation with the Prosecutor General’s Office of Uzbekistan. In particular, the importance of the IAP delegation led by President Gerhard Jarosch during the visit to Uzbekistan held in Uzbekistan this year was particularly emphasized.
According to Jan Holst Hübner, it is important for the parties to strengthen close cooperation both in the interests of Uzbekistan and the international community of prosecutors. Despite the fact that the Association was created only 23 years ago at the UN initiative, at present, 180 countries are members of the IAO, and it is a unique platform for establishing professional contacts between prosecution authorities in most countries of the world.
The IAP leadership confirmed the invitation for Uzbekistan to join the association, which is in the interest of expanding the practical international cooperation of our country in this area.
Following the meeting, the leaders of the IAP expressed their hope that a representative delegation of Uzbekistan would participate in the meeting of the member states in September 2019 in Argentina.
