Congratulatory message from the Minister of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Lieutenant-General P. Bobojonov, on the occasion of "June 27 - Press and Mass Media Workers Day"
Dear employees of the press and media!
On behalf of the Ministry of Internal Affairs leadership and staff, I sincerely congratulate you on your professional holiday - Press and Media Workers Day!
The media has a special place in the ongoing reforms, the creative work in the regions, and the efforts to improve the welfare of our people in our country.
Today when democratic changes, openness and transparency, freedom of speech and opinion are becoming the criteria of our lives, the responsibility of journalists is also growing.
We should note that the analysis and evaluation of positive changes in our lives in the press and media, as well as the growing healthy critical spirit, are necessary aspects of building an active civil society.
Furthermore, the media, as the leading force for shaping opinions and views in society, is also significant for law enforcement agencies. The reason is that in the minds and attitudes of the public, we can see an unbiased evaluation of our activities.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my deep gratitude to you for your efforts to bring the police closer to the people, your attention to the field and your outstanding contribution to informing the public about the activities of our system.
I wish you good health, happiness for your family and success in your creative endeavours!
Minister of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan
