The current perturbation processes have led to limited chaos in this sub regional zone, which supplemented by diversified spector challenges occurring in the Greater Middle East and adjacent regions of Greater Central Asia within the transit zones. At the same time dynamics was consolidated in the overall factorization of geopolitical actors, which led to the transformation of the military-political component and conceptual approaches considering the state as a factor or environment but not the main subject.

This approach de facto derived the geopolitical theory "managed chaos" adopted in the United States to a new level and supplemented by the conceptual basis of the "General asymmetry of modern Theaters of Military Operations (TMO)". On October 27 Senior Analyst of the Middle East Special Operations Division of the CIA Daniel McCafferty presented the report "Crisis Management. Systems of Controlled Instability 2015-2022 "on the past hearing in the US State Department on the "Current state of the Middle East".

A lot of dictionaries and encyclopedias definitely do not favor to multi-vector foreign policy either a complete lack of information or a type of response such as "multi-vector aimed at the main geographical directions (on the foreign policy of the state)". [1]. If there is more information it is also very one-sided, for example in the article about Leonid Kuchma of the Ukrainian version of Wikipedia there is a section "Bagatovektorna Politika" [2], but the principle of multivector in the encyclopedia is not specified. However in Russian and English versions is the same.

In general there is no full clarity why since the 90's a number of countries of post-Soviet space began to lack traditional principles to conduct their foreign policy (participation in military-political blocs, neutrality, maneuvering between different centers of power). For example [3] a number of factors are exemplified where Kazakhstan was simply forced to pursue a multi-vector policy according to experts’ opinions. This is a military weakness (the nuclear weapons have been abandoned), richest resources that neighbors had put an eye, long undefended border and unresolved border problems, geographical location of the country between Russia and China, pressure of world centers of power and regional states and the others.

At the beginning of November 2017 it became known that the president of Uzbekistan, S. Mirziyev is going to visit Tajikistan as a state visit in the nearest future (presumably before the end of 2017). Currently the Uzbek and Tajik parties are engaged in the process of preparing for the planned state visit of President of Uzbekistan S. Mirziyeva to Tajikistan.

After the official assumption of the post of the Uzbek President Sh. Mirziyev instructed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan to develop a strategy for the development of bilateral relations with the states of Central Asia (CA), which should be based on the principles of a multi-vector foreign policy and the priority of national interests of the country.

According to the strategy the Uzbek party intends to move gradually closer to its neighbors in the region. Except Kazakhstan the head of Uzbekistan considers Tajikistan as an important partner in the region. Developing good-neighborly relations with Tajikistan the Uzbek authorities plan to achieve notable successes in implementing their own regional plans in the political and economic fields.

Question: According to the media there is an opinion that despite the obvious completion of the process of transit Uzbekistan didn’t complete the final transition. The main thing is supposedly ahead. Could you, share your opinion?

Answer: The power transit has been completed since the election of the new president and this is obvious. All the rest, which is constantly being said in the media is only internal political processes that are endogenous and in no way dependent on the so-called transit of power.

Question: how can the country's domestic policy change with the new president? Will there any coordinated changes?

Answer: The current authorities of Uzbekistan and the president of the country will not drastically change the political course of the state, both inside it and on the international political level. It should be noted that the new leaders of the state worked before under the first President of Uzbekistan I. Karimov and took a direct part in the implementation of all political, economic and social reforms. In this regard the question arises why radically change what has worked for many years and showed worthy results?
