The Czech Embassy in Tashkent is authorized to coordinate meetings of EU member-countries' consuls in Uzbekistan, the Czech diplomatic mission said on Monday.

According to the agreement reached by the heads of diplomatic missions of EU member states in Tashkent during a meeting of the Embassy of Slovakia in late February, issues relating to Schengen visas for residents of Uzbekistan continue to be administered by the Polish
Embassy in Tashkent.
