“The Termez-Mazari-Sharif-Kabul-Peshawar railway is our common future. When the construction of this route is completed, we will create the closest, cheapest and safest corridor connecting Pakistan to Central Asia, and Uzbekistan to the ports of Karachi, Gwadar and Qasim. This railway will completely change the face of our regions,” the President said.

The parties also discussed the prospects for the resumption of regular flights, as well as the opening of representative offices of the ministries of tourism of the two countries for the systematic organization of pilgrimages.

Following the talks in an expanded format, a ceremony of signing bilateral documents was held.
