Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi spent the past few days visiting each of the Central Asian republics, the first top-level visit of its kind in recent Indian history.
He first touched down in Uzbekistan, then headed to Kazakhstan before visiting Turkmenistan. A short trip to Kyrgyzstan followed, before Modi wrapped up the trip on July 13 in Tajikistan.
Negotiations in each country had a different focus. In Uzbekistan, talks centered on the 2013 bilateral agreement between the countries wherein Uzbekistan had pledged to provide uranium for India’s power needs. The countries outlined steps they could take to realize the agreement, Narendra’s camp said.
