Activities of individual departments of the National Security Service and its territorial offices were criticizedAt the meeting held under the chairmanship of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev on January 31, activities of individual departments of the National Security Service and its territorial offices were criticized on the basis of an objective assessment. Specific shortcomings and omissions in organization of interagency cooperation, conduction of operational and investigative measures, as well as working with personnel were noted.
The Head of the state noted the need of restructuring the National Security Service, taking into account modern requirements. Importance of abolition of departments that are engaged in tasks that are not peculiar to the special service was emphasized, which in a number of cases led to substitution of functions of other state structures, as well as strengthening departments in the most relevant areas of national security.
Taking into account the large-scale tasks set in the Development Strategy of Uzbekistan, priority tasks of the National Security Service for the near future were determined in the context of a new stage in development of the country, which is characterized by cardinal transformations that meet the requirements of time in almost all spheres.
