In my hometown of Seattle, Washington, close to 500 Americans will be attending a Navruz celebration as part of the Tashkent-Seattle Sister Cities program. I know they too will be enjoying the traditional servings of sumalak and plov and that they join me in wishing all Uzbek families peace, good health and success, as we all work together to strengthen the bonds of friendship between our two countries. Navruz Mubarak!"

This holiday gives people light and fills people's hearts with inspiration and creativity.

"On this amazing day, on behalf of the Embassy of Russia I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to the people of Uzbekistan! I wish you good health, kindness, wellbeing and the best of luck in your undertakings that contribute to prosperity and peace. May each and every household in Uzbekistan enjoy lasting peace and abundance!"
