TASHKENT, Uzbekistan, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- The president of Uzbekistan met with the Russian prime minister to discuss “bilateral cooperation” Friday.

Russian Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov and Uzbek President Islam Karimov said relations between the two countries “will develop further,” Itar-Tass reported Friday.

A news release from the Russian government said, “The sides discussed the priority issues of bilateral cooperation and exchanged detailed views on key international and regional problems of mutual interest.”

In the meeting at the Uzbek’s presidential palace, Karimov also welcomed Russia’s assistance with financial monitoring services in Uzbekistan. The Uzbek system is modeled after a similar Russian agency, which Zubkov formerly chaired.
