U.S. has no plan to set up military base in Uzbekistan: envoy

U.S. Special Envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke said Sunday his country has no plan to set up a military base in Uzbekistan, Xinhua reported.

Holbrooke made the remarks after meeting with Kazakhstan's Secretary of State and Foreign Minister Kanat Saudabayev earlier in the day in Astana.

Holbrooke said Uzbekistan has given valuable support for the U.S. transportation of materials to Afghanistan. He also appreciated Kyrgyzstan's consent to set up a pass-through transportation center at the Manas international airport.

Holbrooke also met with Kazakhstan's Prime Minister Karim Masimov on bilateral and multilateral cooperation and development. They exchanged views about coordination on the Afghanistan issue.

Holbrooke would travel to Georgia after his visit to Kazakhstan.
