Answer: A

Uzbekistan is a hot, dry, landlocked country. It is one of two doubly landlocked countries in the world (that is, a landlocked country completely surrounded by other landlocked countries), the other being Liechtenstein.

Uzbekistan borders Kazakhstan and the Aralkum Desert to the north and northwest, Turkmenistan and Afghanistan to the southwest, Tajikistan to the southeast, and Kyrgyzstan to the northeast. It is one of the largest Central Asian states and the only Central Asian state to border all the other four.
