Obidov Mohammed, President of the Fergana Region Association of Journalists of the Republic of Uzbekistan, said: "Today, I have come to an important city on the Silk Road that connects Chinese and Western civilizations, and I am touched by the fact that so many people in the old city of Jiaohe built such a city thousands of years ago. At the Qanats Museum, I marveled at the wisdom of people's productive life in the past, which was not only a simple drinking water irrigation system, but also provided people in other parts of the world with experience in using water, and promoted the exchange of civilizations. This is a very historic city, I hope to see more books about Turpan in foreign languages, and I will do my best to tell the audience of the Republic of Uzbekistan the stories I saw and heard in Xinjiang. ”
