O'zbekiston Tashqi ishlar vaziri Abdulaziz Komilov AQSh poytaxtida ikki amerikalik arbobga - kongressmen Trent Kelli va olim Frederik Starrga "Do'stlik" ordeni taqdi.
Ular Mustaqillik kuni arafasida Prezident Mirziyoyev tomonidan taqdirlangan edi. Kelli va Starr, rahbariyat nazarida, AQSh-O'zbekiston hamkorligiga behisob hissa qo'shib kelmoqda.
Komilov deydiki, "O'zbekiston islohotlar va demokratik o'zgarishlar yo'lidan qaytmaydi".
Toshkent Amerika uni bu borada quvvatlayotganidan minnatdor.
