Islam Karimov and Koïchiro Matsuura

President of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov received UNESCO Director General Koïchiro Matsuura in Tashkent on Friday.

During the negotiations, the sides discussed perspectives of cooperation between Uzbekistan and UNESCO.

”We highly value the developing cooperation with UNESCO and your support of the initiatives of Uzbekistan,” Islam Karimov said at the meeting.
Koïchiro Matsuura awarded Islam Karimov with UNESCO’s Borobudur Gold Medal.

The medal was introduced by UNESCO in 1983 and is called so in the name of the famous Buddhist temple in central Java, which dates from the 8th and 9th centuries. The monument was restored with UNESCO`s help between 1972 and 1983. Included in UNESCO’s World Heritage List, Borobudur is annually visited by 2.5 million tourists.

The Borobudur medal was awarded to the President of Uzbekistan for his great contribution to strengthening friendship and cooperation between the nations, development of cultural and religious dialogue, and supporting cultural diversity.

Uzbekistan became a member of UNESCO in 1993, and the organization opened its office in the country three years after that. UNESCO provides wide assistance to the country in the fields of education, restoration of historical monuments, preservation of cultural heritage and others.
