General Michael Garrett Commanding General of U.S. Army Central arrived in Uzbekistan on December 13 with a team of advisors and support staff. His visit is evidence of continued high-level engagement with the Government of Uzbekistan and the Ministry of Defense as a part of our broad range of security cooperation. During his visit, General Garrett’s team met with representatives from the Uzbek Ministry of Defense and participated in a briefing at the Armed Forces Academy. Security cooperation is one way in which the United States shows its continued support of Uzbekistan’s sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity. After productive meetings and enjoying his first visit to Uzbekistan, General Garrett departed on December 15.
