VOA Broadcasting in Uzbek

VOA Uzbek is a web, audio and video source of independent, reliable and accurate news and information to Uzbek-speaking audiences around the world. It’s a unique platform mainly for the people of Central Asia, particularly Uzbekistan, who are deprived of quality, locally-sourced content. VOA Uzbek links the U.S. with Central Asia, and conveys Washington’s policies to this very turbulent part of the world. The Uzbek service also covers issues relevant to ethnic Uzbeks in all neighboring countries.
