Dear People of Uzbekistan

The Executive Committee of the Regional Antiterrorist Group of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO RATS) has been conducting its international activities in the city of Tashkent, the capital of the Republic of Uzbekistan, for 16 years. Tashkent has turned into a second home for the representatives of the SCO member states, citizens of the Republic of India, Republic of Kazakhstan, the People's Republic of China, Kyrgyz Republic, Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Russian Federation, Republic of Tajikistan and, of course, Republic of Uzbekistan.

During all these years, staff members of the Executive Committee of the SCO RATS have been working on their mission, coordinating cooperation between competent bodies of the SCO member states in countering terrorism and other threats to the regional safety, receiving excellent support from the Republic of Uzbekistan and collaborating closely with the national public authorities. The hospitable Uzbek people make us and our families feel welcome and safe here. We, both the current staff and our predecessors, thank you for this!

In this difficult time, when the threat to safety of nations and people is not remote, but very close and material, having touched all countries and brought tragedies to dozens of thousands of families throughout the world, affecting global economy and national interests, we want to express solidarity with the decisive measures taken by the President and Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan to fight the pandemic of the COVID-19.

We see very clearly how united, disciplined, and committed are the Uzbek people in implementation of these measures. This makes us confident that we will win together!

We, staff members of the Executive Committee of the SCO RATS, are part of the Uzbek people today. We live and work here, our children study in Tashkent schools, we go to the same parks, theatres and shops, we love this city and this country, and have a great respect for this people. And we want to make a modest contribution to the nation-wide measures on fighting COVID-19 by transfering our one-day wages to the «O‘zbekiston Mehr-shafqat va salomatlik» Public Foundation for Charity and Healthcare.

We are together! Biz birgamiz!

Team of the Executive Committee of the Regional Antiterrorist Group of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation
