ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and Uzbekistan have shared values and are tied in Islamic bonds which need to be further cemented by boosting existing economic cooperation between the two countries, said Power Minister Omar Ayub Khan.
Speaking in a meeting with Uzbekistan Ambassador Furqat Sidiqov, who called on the minister at his office on Friday, Khan said Pakistan wanted to take benefit of energy sources of Uzbekistan, especially its huge gas reserves.
