“We hope Bangladesh will support this issue for our mutual interest and cooperation.” Khafizovich said.

Both countries have good opportunities for trade relations especially in the field of textile and Uzbekistan has high quality cotton which can be used in Bangladesh, he said.

Bangladesh also raised the issue of resuming Uzbekistan Airways direct passenger flight to expand trade between the countries.
