1945-1991 History of Uzbekistan





Uzbekistan since 1991



In 1991 Uzbekistan declared independence; the USSR disintegrated by the end of the year. Uzbekistan (President ISLAM KARIMOV, since 1991) joined the CIS. In 1994 Uzbekistan signed a treaty on economic integration with Russia, another treaty on cooperation in the fields of economy, defense and social policy with neighbouring republics Kazakhstan and Kyrgyztan. In 1995 formation of political parties permitted. In 1996, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyztan created a CENTRAL ASIAN COMMON MARKET. Elections held in 1999 and a referendum held in 2002 (extending Karimov's presidency) were widely criticized as unfair.

The National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan was established in 1992 and recognized by the IOC in 1993.
