The United States will not use the airfield in the Uzbek town of Khanabad for ground operations or for bombing Afghanistan, Uzbek President Islam Karimov said on Thursday. He expressed satisfaction that the U.S.A. "strictly complies with the terms" of the corresponding protocol. The president said the 1,500 U.S. troops stationed at Khanabad airfield "behave like one should on the territory of a foreign state." "Throughout this time, we have not received a single complaint from local residents about the Americans," Karimov emphasised. "Neither we nor the U.S.A. are keeping records of how many U.S. aircraft land or take off," the Uzbek president pointed out.
