Regular cultural and humanitarian events are a symbol of brotherhood and spiritual kinship of the Uzbek and Kyrgyz peoples. Head of the Department of International Relations and Law of the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kyrgyzstan Ainur Dzhorobekova shared this opinion at a video conference on the prospects for cooperation between Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, organized on 13 March by the Institute for Strategic and Interregional Studies under the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan
As the representative of the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic noted, the heads of state give priority to the development of cultural and humanitarian cooperation between the peoples of the two countries. During the visit of the head of Kyrgyzstan to Tashkent, the adherence to the course of further strengthening the Uzbek-Kyrgyz relations in the spirit of friendship, good-neighborliness, trust and strategic partnership was re-emphasized. In recent years, cooperation between the two countries in all areas has significantly intensified. This trend is not only already bearing fruit, but also opens up new horizons for further cooperation.
An important point, according to the expert, was also the signing within the framework of the visit of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Academy of Public Administration under the President of the Kyrgyz Republic and the Academy of Public Administration under the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan. There is no doubt that cooperation in the field of training civil service personnel will serve the development of both countries, in particular, there is an opportunity to exchange experience in the field of public administration and personnel policy, as well as to study the system of retraining and advanced training of civil servants.

Dzhorobekova is convinced that the agreements reached during the visit open up wide opportunities for using the untapped potential of cooperation in the field of education and science, which will give an additional impetus to the development of cooperation in this direction. In this regard, she considers it necessary to strengthen direct interuniversity ties, develop and implement joint educational programs for the preparation of bachelors and masters in the direction of "regional studies".
