The U.S. Embassy continues to work with its Uzbekistan partners to improve border security and stop the flow of illegal drugs.  The Embassy, with USCENTCOM Counternarcotics funding, is assisting the Uzbekistan State Customs Committee with improvements to the Customs post at Karakalpakiya.  These improvements include the installation of a series of steel tresses over the rail yard capable of supporting a new closed circuit television network and an improved lighting system.
