TASHKENT, June 9 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao arrived here Wednesday for a state visit to Uzbekistan, where he will also attend a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

This is Hu's second trip to the Central Asian nation since he became China's head of state in 2003. In June 2004, Hu visited Uzbekistan and attended an SCO summit in Tashkent.

During his stay in Tashkent, he will meet his Uzbek counterpart Islam Karimov to exchange views on the current situation and prospects of bilateral ties, as well as international and regional issues of common concern, said Chinese diplomats.

The two countries will ink a series of cooperation agreements in economy, trade and other areas, they said.
