Uzbekistan's President Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited Turkey's capital Ankara to meet with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyib Erdogan. Both leaders discussed several issues mainly including bilateral trade relations, Eurasia Diary reports citing Anadolu Agency.

“We have exceeded $1 billion in both exports and imports for the first time in bilateral trade relations, but there is still a long way to go,” Erdogan said at a joint news conference.

“We define our relations with Uzbekistan as a strategic partnership based on strong brotherly ties with our common history, language and culture,” Erdogan added.

“We encourage our entrepreneurs to invest in Uzbekistan. According to Uzbek statistics, only last year, 430 Turkish companies started operating in Uzbekistan and the number of our companies rose to 1,306.”

Both leaders set goal of reaching $5 billion trade turnover.
