Tajikistan, Uzbekistan resume flights after 25 years

Tajikistan, Uzbekistan resume flights after 25 years
After a 25-year break, fractious Central Asian neighbours Tajikistan and Uzbekistan have reestablished regular connecting flights, a spokeswoman at Tajikistan's international airport told AFP Tuesday, paving the way for improved relations. "An Uzbekistan airways flight (from Tashkent) landed at Dushanbe international airport at 8:03 am (0303 GMT)," the airport spokeswoman told AFP by telephone. "The plane and the passengers were very well met." Doubts were cast over an apparent rapprochement between the two countries that have a traditionally fraught relationship when a long-awaited flight from Dushanbe to Tashkent was abruptly cancelled in February.
