“This year Uzbekistan imported 917 million cubic meters of gas. This is a big figure. Secondly, we import, pay money for it, deliver using foreign currency. What will happen in the future? It would be correct to say that the $ 1.4 billion allocated over the past three years is not working. People are very unhappy with us because of the light and especially the gas, ”Mirziyoyev said.
