The President of the United States of America Joe Biden has sent a letter to Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev announcing a planned summit in the C5+1 format with the participation of Central Asian leaders. According to the letter, the summit is scheduled for September 19 or 20 this year in New York City, within the framework of the UN General Assembly.

"I hope you will join me and our fellow leaders for a formal C5+1 meeting on September 19 or September 20 to discuss how we can all continue working together to advance our shared security, economic and environmental goals," Biden said in the letter.

On February 28 this year, the Central Asian foreign ministers and the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken discussed cooperation in food security and energy in a C5+1 format meeting in Kazakhstan’s capital Astana

Established in 2015, the C5+1 format serves as a multilateral mechanism of interaction between the five Central Asian countries and the US. The dialogue focuses on economic development, regional cooperation and security issues.
