April was an eventful month in terms of numerous summit meetings, about security and defense issues, but also cooperation. However, important announcements were also made about energy, development and environment.

The beginning of April was initially shaped with news regarding the central Asian air security system, with the announcement of the export of iHTAR anti-drone systems to Kyrgyzstan, underlining the growing importance of UAVs in Central Asian combat doctrines. At the same time, Kyrgyzstan also signed a joint air defense system with Russia. The month was also marked by a rapprochement of Central Asia with NATO members through a visit of the American Secretary and CENTCOM to Turkmenistan, followed by a visit of the Italian Defense Minister to Uzbekistan. Finally, the holding of the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organisation) on 28 April allowed for a dialogue with the Pakistani and the Kyrgyz government.
