Japan will provide ¥202 million in grant aid to Uzbekistan over three years from this April to help the Central Asian republic develop human resources, the Foreign Ministry said Monday.

The aid will be devoted mainly to covering the expenses of young governmental officials from the country studying in Japan, it said.

Parliamentary Senior Vice Foreign Minister Ryuji Yamane and Uzbek Deputy Prime Minister Abdulla Nigmatovich Aripov signed and exchanged documents for the aid Thursday in Tashkent, it said.
