Uzbek Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov in New York attended the regular  meeting in the C5+1 format between the five Central Asian countries and the United States of America on Friday.

The U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan and Foreign Ministers of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan's special representative at the UN attended the meeting, during which they reportedly discussed the ways to develop ties in various areas, implementing joint projects aimed at strengthening cooperation.

The C5+1 is a format for dialogue and a platform for joint efforts to address common challenges faced by the United States and the five Central Asian countries, particularly in issue areas, where regional approaches may provide a comparative advantage.

The C5 + 1 created in 2015 include projects in Counter-Terrorism, Central Asia Business Competitiveness, Transport Corridor Development, Power the Future and Supporting National and Regional Adaptation Planning.
