Uzbekistan is supportive of the United States over the issue of international terrorism. It was the first former Soviet republic to allow the US military use of its bases to attack the Taleban regime in Afghanistan after the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. Uzbekistan announced yesterday [14 June 2002] that it was withdrawing from the alliance of five post-Soviet states known as GUUAM (Georgia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Moldova)… The GUUAM organization was created in 1997 as a strategic alliance of four states (Uzbekistan joining it two years later).

Iran financed the pipeline and gas deliveries will be used to pay off Turkmenistan’s debt (IHT, 31 December 1997, p. 2). On 18 November 1999 an agreement was signed on a gas pipeline from Turkmenistan via the Caspian Sea to Turkey.

2, p. 26). The law on private ownership of land was introduced in December 1995 (KET, Quarterly Issue, April–June 1999, p. 38). After political resistance forced the government to reconsider a draft new law in 1999, the revised draft no longer provides for the possibility of full private ownership over agricultural land. While the existing ninety-nine-year long-term leases are transferable and can be used as collateral, with low land values and remaining legal uncertainty, a rural land market has failed to develop.
