Correction: Uzbekistan Appeals for $1.5 Billion USD for Aral Sea Region

The second-to-last paragraph of the commentary should read: Yusufjan Shadimetov, president of the ECOSAN International Organization (an environmental group headquartered in Tashkent, the Uzbek capital), told OOSKAnews: "It is small money in comparison with the problems the region has. Also, the (environmental) situation has improved to a certain extent in the last 15 years."
