Rule of law and access to justice play an important role in development, a senior UN official has said.
Helen Clark, Administrator of the UN Development Programme, made the remarks during her visit to Uzbekistan.
She also visited an earthquake simulation complex in the capital city of Tashkent, which raises awareness on the central Asian nation’s vulnerability to seismic events.
Two major World Heritage sites in the ancient cities of Khiva and Bukhara were also part of her visit.
Bobur Komilov asked Ms Clark about some of the positive outcomes achieved by her visit.
