After the flash mob President Choue thanked the President of Uzbekistan for his contribution to the successful event:

'My special thanks go to President of Uzbekistan, ShavkatMirziyoyev. Without his enormous support, taekwondo wouldn't be as popular as it is now. I believe all students here will be part of the future for taekwondo in Uzbekistan!'
