The Ministry of Justice of Uzbekistan has registered the French Alliance Tashkent, informs the Embassy of France in Uzbekistan.
The French Alliance replaces the French Institute. It should be mentioned that in summer of 2014 the French Institute, providing paid French language courses, was closed due to the incompatibility of its legal status with the working law of Uzbekistan. Since 2011, the Institute had organized various cultural events along with French language courses.
Intergovernmental agreement on establishment and conditions concerning the activities of the French Alliance was signed on November 7, 2014, between the ministers of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan and France.
