Welcome to Embassy of India, Tashkent, Uzbekistan
Relations between Uzbekistan and India are based on shared historical and cultural ties. Consulate General of India in Tashkent was formally inaugurated on 7th April 1987. Following independence of Uzbekistan, it was upgraded to the level of Embassy through the signing of a diplomatic and consular protocol on 18th March 1992. The two countries share common values such as secularism, tolerance and strong opposition to the forces of fundamentalism and terrorism. Cooperation between the two countries spans many areas such as economic and commercial, cultural, education and technical training in diverse disciplines, information technology, science and technology, agriculture and civil aviation etc. In May 2011 during President Karimov's visit to India, bilateral relations were updated to that of strategic partnership. The visits of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to Uzbekistan in July 2015 and June 2016, and recent meeting with President Shavkat Mirziyoyev in Astana, have given the bilateral relations a further impetus.
