His Excellency Javlon Vakhabov, Ambassador of Uzbekistan to the United States, will address a WAC-DC audience in an Ambassador Series program.

Ambassador Vakhabov previously spoke at a WAC-DC Embassy Series event in July.  His formal remarks from that event can be found here.

Uzbekistan has a unique, rich culture that has been influenced throughout its history by different groups and empires competing for control over the territory in central Asia. The Persians, Macedonian Greeks, Mongols, Soviets and Russians have each passed through the area and left their lasting marks on the culture and its people.  Uzbekistan possess natural resources and its economy is growing.  It is a member of several international organizations, such as the Commonwealth of Independent States and most notably, the United Nations.

Serving as discussant will be retired US Ambassador Laura Kennedy, who served as US Ambassador to Turkmenistan (2001-2003), and has an extensive Foreign Service career experience in Central Asia.  Amb. Kennedy is Chair of the WAC-DC Board of Directors International Affairs Committee.
