“No matter what the external threats, Uzbekistan will be ready for them if the needs of the people are met, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev said at a meeting in the Jizzakh province on April 9. Footage of his remarks was shown on Saturday in the Menimcha program on the Uzbekistan 24 TV.

“Even a person far from politics sees and understands what is happening in the world. People who say they are not politicians see and understand this. There are many questions for which there are no solutions. The balance in the international arena has been disrupted. The rules have changed radically. It would be fair to say that even those countries that were considered friends have lost mutual trust,” he said.

“No one knows where the conflicts may expand further and what their scale will be”, he noted.

“Why am I telling you this? Do we value our true independence or not? No matter what the external threats are, we will be prepared for those threats if we meet the needs of the people. To maintain peace in our country, provide income to our people, and create decent conditions for them, we need a stable and rapidly growing economy. We need high-income new jobs. We need exports,” Shavkat Mirziyoyev emphasized.

“All this is based on dedication and patriotism. The most important thing is that there has to be a change in consciousness to ultimately create jobs, convince people and serve public policy,” he said.

“I will still achieve this whatever it takes. If God gives me health and life, the days will come when we will have no poverty and unemployment. I devoted seven years of my life to this, created a system for this, created laws, opened the country to the world. I came to this job so that my people could live well, so that their dreams would come true, so that children would live prosperously, be happy, so that grandchildren would be born healthy, so that medicine would work, schools would work, so that the roads would be smooth. Who will think about the people of Uzbekistan if not us?” - said the president.
