It was emphasized that over the past period the National Security Service made a significant contribution to ensuring sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Uzbekistan.

Specific shortcomings and omissions in organization of interagency cooperation, conduction of operational and investigative measures, as well as working with personnel were noted.

The Head of the state noted the need of restructuring the National Security Service, taking into account modern requirements. Importance of abolition of departments that are engaged in tasks that are not peculiar to the special service was emphasized, which in a number of cases led to substitution of functions of other state structures, as well as strengthening departments in the most relevant areas of national security.

Taking into account the large-scale tasks set in the Development Strategy of Uzbekistan, priority tasks of the National Security Service for the near future were determined in the context of a new stage in development of the country, which is characterized by cardinal transformations that meet the requirements of time in almost all spheres.

The President emphasized that the National Security Service, as one of the state power structures, must carry out its activities according to the principle “Not the people serve state bodies, but state bodies serve the people”, which has become a guide for all ministries and departments of the republic.

It was noted importance of developing and adopting the Law of the Republic of Uzbekistan “On the National Security Service” in 2018, which will determine the main functions and tasks of the National Security Service and, most importantly, will allow to clearly delineate the powers of the power bodies.

Uzbek leader said that the personnel of the National Security Service, as well as of any other agency or organization, are the key to its effective activity, especially its leading employees, their dedication, professionalism, hard work and high responsibility.

The units of the National Security Service should, within the scope of their competence, provide active assistance to the population in solving its problems, local government bodies and other state bodies – in the implementation of the initiated large-scale reforms.

The President of the Republic of Uzbekistan demanded special attention from the leaders and faculty of the educational institutions of the National Security Service for the education of young cadres in the spirit of devotion to the Motherland, strict observance of the requirements of national legislation, resistance to various tests, aspiration for constant self-improvement and professional growth.

The meeting considered the organizational issue.

In connection with the appointment to the post of the State Adviser to the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Chairman of the National Security Service, Rustam Inoyatov, was relieved of his post.

In accordance with the Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Ihtiyor Abdullayev, who previously worked as the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Uzbekistan, was appointed as the chairman of the National Security Service.

Responsible persons are given appropriate instructions to further enhance the effectiveness of the National Security Service and its units.

TEHRAN – An Iranian diplomat who had participated in the Sochi talks on Syria said on Tuesday that Iranian military advisory forces will leave Syria after victory over terrorism.

Hossein Jaberi Ansari, the assistant foreign minister for political affairs, made the remarks in talks to reporters on the sidelines of the Syrian peace conference in the Russian resort city of Sochi.

“Iranian forces entered Syria at the request of the Syrian government in order to help the Syrian government in the battle against terrorism,” said Jaberi Ansari, who was leading the Iranian delegation to Sochi.

“It is obvious that once their job is finished, they will withdraw from the Syrian territory,” he added.

Sochi hosted talks between the Syrian government and the opposition in the hope of paving the way for a peaceful settlement of the seven-year conflict gripping Syria.

The Syrian Congress of National Dialog started on Monday and continued till Tuesday. The talks were moderated by Russia and Iran, on the side of Damascus, and Turkey, which aligns itself with several armed opposition groups.

Jaberi Ansari earlier on Tuesday said that the Sochi conference was a positive step in efforts to end the Syrian crisis, adding that the various segments of the Syrian political community were represented in the congress.

Ansari added that Iran called on Turkey to urge the different opposition groups to attend the conference, however it appeared that Turkey’s influence was limited.

Commenting on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Moscow, Ansari said that Israel is the main beneficiary of the Syria crisis and that Russia would not be involved in the Israeli scheme.

Also on Tuesday, Jaberi Ansari held talks with United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.

The two sides stressed the importance of continued consultation and cooperation to find a peaceful solution to the ongoing conflict in Syria.
