Uzbekistan will never join unions like the USSR - President
Tashkent. January 13. KazTAG - Uzbekistan will never enter the unions like former USSR, said Islam Karimov, President of Uzbekistan.
"We have our development way meeting the needs of people. I'd like to emphasize once again there is no way back to the past. Uzbekistan will never enter the unions like former USSR," he said.
