TASHKENT – Uzbekistan and Pakistan are considering co-operation in maritime cargo shipping and in electricity, new Pakistani Ambassador to Uzbekistan Riaz Hussain Bukhari said in an interview published by Uzbekistan Today August 1.

Pakistan supports Uzbekistan's request to use Pakistani seaports like Gwadar so that Uzbek goods can easily reach world markets, he said. Recently, Uzbekistan suggested exporting electricity to Pakistan through Afghanistan, he added.

A line from Uzbekistan to Afghanistan already exists. A proposed Kabul-to-Peshawar line is in the study stage, he said.
