The Summit of Leaders of Central Asia and the United States Showed the Migration of Countries From Russia

On the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session in New York on the evening of September 19, the first summit of leaders of the countries of Central Asia and the United States, called C5+1, was held. US President Joe Biden held talks with the presidents of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev, Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon, Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov and Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov. The C5+1 format as a regional diplomatic platform at the government level was formed in 2015, Vedomosti wrote , but the meeting of the leaders of the countries was held for the first time.

As Uzbek political scientist Anvar Nazirov noted, before this, meetings were held annually at the level of foreign ministers.

Before the war, the organization did not particularly stand out against the background of such as the SCO, CSTO, Eurasian Economic Community. However, since the start of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, much has changed, including Central Asia changing dramatically.

At the summit, they discussed and decided to formalize completely different topics in the form of treaties and agreements – from climate change to the fight against terrorism and regional security issues. The fact that this summit is another blow to Putin’s ambitions regarding the countries that were once part of the USSR is already obvious to everyone. According to the political scientist, some countries in the region

They have simply learned to lead Russia by the nose against the backdrop of such “stabs of knives in the back.”

Thus, according to Nazirov, the Prime Minister of Uzbekistan went to see Mikhail Mishustin. A lot of nice things were said there, for example, that Uzbekistan is interested in Moscow’s proposals to open several Russian schools in Uzbekistan. However, upon returning home, Uzbek officials stated that schools in Uzbekistan operated only on the basis of Uzbek laws and that no agreements had been signed with Russia. In the same way, the Uzbek authorities postponed the project to build a nuclear power plant with the participation of Rosatom. Moreover, 90% of the population of Uzbekistan was categorically against the nuclear power plant.

Similar organizations Central Asia + EU, + Japan, + China, + South Korea, + India + Central Asia, the Turkic Union led by Turkey – all this completely changes everything in the region.

There are consultants and grants for all issues. Russia cannot offer anything like this to Central Asia. Russia has neither money, nor know-how, nor military potential now and will not have it at all in the future – the countries of the region have understood this.

It became obvious to the Central Asian states that Moscow cannot compete with the multipolar world in Central Asia alone, either economically, technologically or militarily.

The summit adopted a resolution that reflects issues of interaction on many issues.
