At the end of June, a delegation of Xinjiang Astronomical ObservatoryXAOvisited the Ulugh Beg Observatory and Al-Biruni Oriental Literature Institute of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan. The members of delegation include the Director and the Deputy Director of the Optical Astronomy Research Laboratory, Lu Ma and Aili·Esamdin; Director of Science and Technology Office, Jun Nie and Jinjing Li from the “China-Central Asia History of Astronomy Joint Research Center”.


During the visit, the delegation exchanged views with Professor Shuhrat A. Ehgamberdiev, Director of Ulugh Beg Observatory, and Professor Abdukhalimov Bakhrom, Director of Al-Biruni Oriental Literature Institute, on research cooperation in time domain astronomy and the history of astronomy in Central Asia. Both directors from the Observatory and the Institute showed great interests in furthering the cooperation with XAO. In fact, previous cooperation between Al-Biruni Oriental Literature Institute and XAO has already made substantial progress. Both sides will carry out collaborations on literature translation, publications and research. 


The construction of “One Belt One Road” is currently underway which has enabled brilliant results on cooperation in economy, security and culture between China and Uzbekistan. Ulugh Beg Observatory and Al-Biruni Oriental Literature Institute have excellent research strengths and intense geographical features. In particular, Al-Biruni Oriental Literature Institute is an organization that is matchless in collection of ancient documents in Central Asia. The visit has promoted collaboration between the Astronomical research institute of Uzbekistan and XAO, and laid a good foundation for future exchange and cooperation.
