Rice to stay away from Uzbekistan

From MosNews:

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has decided no to visit Uzbekistan during her coming trip to the Central Asia.

Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs, Daniel Fried, quoted by RIA-Novosti news agency said it was a “wise decision not to go” to Uzbekistan.

The reason of this cancellation was that the United States is concerned over clashes in the Uzbek city of Andijan in May and over the current policy of the Uzbek authorities.
