The United Nations received a gift from the Republic of Uzbekistan – a maquette of the Registan Square.

The event was attended by UN Under-Secretary-General for Management Jan Beagle, diplomats who arrived at the session of the General Assembly, employees of the UN information center.
There is deep meaning in installing the maquette of the Registan complex in the UN building. In our country – one of the cradles of human civilization – science, culture, trade, architecture and craftsmanship have been developed since ancient times. In Samarkand, located in the center of the Great Silk Road, people from all over the world lived in peace and harmony, Registan became a unique symbol of this ancient world-famous city. In 2001 the complex was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Registan is still the center of attraction for tourists from all over the world. “Sharq taronalari” international music festival that is held here, further enhances the glory of the city and its role in strengthening friendship of people.
The maquette of Registan Square is made by craftsmen of our country, decorated with precious metals and stones.
This showpiece is installed in one of the most prominent places of the UN Headquarters – in the passage between the halls of the Security Council and the UN General Assembly.
UN Under-Secretary-General for Management Jan Beagle expressed her deep gratitude to the President of our country for such a wonderful and valuable gift.
